The Mars Bar (R.I.P.) replacement over at 21 East 1st Street hit its full 12-story height at the end of September, and now the top-out is official, according to a press release from the developer. Curbed intern Emily Laskodi took some photos of the building as it looks right now. The project is called Jupiter 21, which has some unfortunate associations for us.
The building will ultimately have 65 units: 13 affordable condos, 52 market-rate studio through two-bedroom rentals, and two commercial condos. Nine of those affordable condos "have been reserved for the tenants of the original buildings displaced by the new construction," according to the press release. The other four will be sold through a supervised lottery, and Corcoran will market the rentals in the usual way. Construction completion is estimated for spring 2013.
