Work is progressing on 100 Pearl Street, a project to renovate the lower floors of the mixed-use Financial District building to an expanded, more pedestrian-friendly arcade, as well as upgrades at the roof level. Alternately addressed as 7 Hanover Square, the overhaul is being designed by S9 Architecture and developed by GFP Real Estate and will feature 1,450 square feet of indoor public space plantings, 10 to 18 food and beverage retailers, at least two new retail shops on Pearl Street and at least two on Water Street, kiosks, 167 new seats, and new lobby space.
YIMBY went to check in on 226-232 East Broadway, the site of a 26-story residential building on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Designed by Space 4 Architecture, aka S4Architecture, and developed by The Ascend Group, the project is rendered with an irregular pattern of windows, perimeter walls, and landscaped balconies and setbacks.
Space 4 Architecture, aka S4Architecture, has released renderings showing a new design for 226-232 East Broadway on the Lower East Side. The original plans called for two residential towers that would rise with identical architectural languages and surround a landmarked pre-war structure at 228 East Broadway. Now the project shows only one modestly tall building rising to the east of the former nursing home. The Ascend Group is the developer of the site.
The Lower East Side’s ongoing development boom has been substantial, with projects ranging from Essex Crossing to One Manhattan Square now nearing completion. But in between those two sites, on a seemingly forgotten block of East Broadway, plans are in the works for another two high-rises. YIMBY last reported on 226-232 East Broadway back in 2016, when the Ascend Group acquired the buildings and lots for $47.5 million. Today, we have the exclusive first look at what’s expected to rise on the site, with two towers of 20 and 36 stories apiece expected to flank the landmark former nursing home at 228 East Broadway.
