Condominium units should average a spacious 1,905 square feet apiece, and amenities will include private and communal outdoor spaces, a reading room, and a renovated lobby. The existing, largely rent-stabilized, building will also get extensive renovations, including new windows, and will have access to 5,000 square feet of new outdoor space on the second floor. SJP Properties and P2B Ventures are the developers and PBDW Architects is designing. Completion is expected in early 2018.
