In November, the 28-story, mixed-use building under development at 215 Chrystie Street, on the Lower East Side, was at the 16th floor, and now Bowery Boogie reports the tower has topped out. The 245,264-square-foot structure stands 314 feet above the street level and will include hotel and residential portions. The building’s lower portion will sport a 370-key Public Hotel, with retail and restaurant space located on the ground floor. The upper portion will feature 11 condominium units, each averaging a spacious 3,035 square feet. Ian Schrager and Witkoff are the developers with Herzog & de Meuron as the design architect and Handel Architects is the architect of record. Completion is expected later this year.
Back in August of 2015, YIMBY reported on applications for a 10-story, 53-unit residential building at 255 East Houston Street, on the Lower East Side, but now landlord Samy Mahfar is taking the project through Urban Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) in order to build commercial-retail space. According to Bowery Boogie, the latest plans call for 13-story building on East Houston and an eight-story counterpart at 171 Suffolk Street. As proposed, the entire project would encompass 93,015 square feet and includes 7,240 square feet of ground-floor retail space. There would be a total of 63 residential units and 20 percent of them would be rented through the affordable housing lottery. Stephen B. Jacobs Group is designing and completion is tentatively scheduled for 2020. An existing four-story building must first be demolished.
Last month, news broke that Madison Equities and Pizzarotti-IBC are planning an 86-story, 245-unit residential tower at 45 Broad Street, in the Financial District, and now The Real Deal has the first look at the 1,100-foot building. CetraRuddy is designing the project, and the renderings are being used in EB-5 materials, which means the design is likely preliminary. The developers are seeking to raise $75 million in financing through the program. The first five floors, or roughly 50,000 square feet, will be dedicated to commercial space, and the residential units will come in studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom configurations. The project’s 20,000 square feet of amenities will include a pool, a fitness center, an outdoor garden, and lounges with entertainment areas. New building applications and a groundbreaking are expected later this year, with completion slated for 2018. AMS Acquisitions is another partner in the project.
Property owner Daniel Wise, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for a six-story, five-unit mixed-use building at 193 Henry Street, on the Lower East Side, located two blocks from the East Broadway stop on the F train. The development will encompass 8,610 square feet and would replace a dilapidated four-story, 25-foot-wide townhouse, for which demolition permits were recently filed. There will be 1,355 square feet of ground-floor retail space and a small 384-square-foot medical office in the cellar. The full-floor residential units begin on the second floor and will average a specious 1,374 square feet apiece, indicative of condos. The structure will be topped by a rooftop terrace and recreation space. Think Architecture and Design is the architect of record.
Back during the summer of 2015, YIMBY brought you an update on the ongoing demolition of the five-story structure at 68 Trinity Place and the 25-story building at 74 Trinity Place, in the Financial District. Property owner Trinity Church has long sought to build a 500-foot-tall mixed-use condominium building at the site, but those plans have now been scrapped in favor of a 25-story, 145,000-square-foot mixed-use building with office space rather than apartments. According to The Real Deal, there will be 98,000 square feet of community facility space for the religious organization, fit with classrooms, a fitness center, a café, and meeting rooms. The office space will begin on the 10th floor. Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects, who designed the latest residential proposal, will again be responsible for the design of the office plans.
