It’s been over a year now since it was announced that a couple of south-of-Union Square neighborhood establishments would be replaced by a condo building. EV Grieve stopped by the construction site recently, located at 34 East 13th Street, and has snapped what appears to be the first rendering for the project.
The Morris Adjmi Architects-designed building will stand seven-stories tall with six, full-floor apartments measuring just under 2,600 square feet each and 3,200 square feet of retail on the ground floor. The project was made possible after Ranger Properties shelled out $22 million on two adjacent buildings last year at the corner of East 13th Street and University Place.
Bennie Louie Chinese Laundry and University Place Gourmet shuttered as a result of the sale, and the buildings were subsequently demolished to make way for this condo project. It’s just one of several rising in the south-of-Union Square area. Other projects include the Annabelle Selldorf-designed condo replacing Bowlmor Lanes at 110 University Place, and a nine-story condo building at 17 East 12th Street.
