First Look At Post Office-Replacing East Village Apartments

New, 11 comments

The Peter Stuyvesant Post Office building on East 14th Street was demolished last year to make room for a new development, and a render has now emerged for the project that will bring 114 apartments and two retail spaces to the East Village, EV Grieve reports.

The residential-retail project is a collaboration between Benenson Capital Partners and the Mack Real Estate Group. SLCE is listed as the architect, according to the most recent Department of Buildings filing for the property.

According to a description on Benenson's website, 80 percent of the units at this eight-story apartment building will be market-rate, and the rest will be affordable. The project will span 140,000 square feet. Retail will be located on the ground floor with one space offering 8,700 square feet of space and the other 8,000 square feet.

Construction is set to begin soon, and is expected to be complete by the end of the year or early next year.

The render unveiling follows a spate of new reveals for projects like Steiner's church-replacing condos, and the dual six-story buildings all rising relatively close to each other in the East Village.
