The terribly-named/probably pop star-inspired Robyn apartment building on East 3rd Street is getting a friend. EV Grieve snapped photos of a new building rising across the street at 321 East 3rd Street, between Avenues C and D. The picture on the construction fence is just a schematic, not a rendering, so it's hard to say what the final building will look like, but it will be six stories and hold 30 apartments.
Permits on file with the Department of Buildings show that Gerald J. Caliendo is the architect of record. The lot was previously vacant and overrun with weeds and garbage, so this building is bound to be an improvement over that.
