Lower Manhattan is constantly buzzing with construction and announcements on new developments whether its Extell’s steadily progressing One Manhattan Square or Streit’s former matzo factory on Rivington Street currently being torn down to make way for luxury condos. It can sometimes seem overwhelming to keep track of all the construction going on in the neighborhood so this week we’re bringing you updates on three projects of varying sizes and in varying stages of development. Check them out below.
↑The Annabelle Selldorf-designed luxury building at 347 Bowery is now in the process of getting its zinc panels applied to its facade. New photos posted by EV Grieve show the fancy 13-story tower beginning to resemble its rendering. Once complete, the building will have just five residences, with four duplexes and one $17 million triplex penthouse that sold just three days after being listed.
↑At 112-120 East 11th Street, scaffolding has gone up as the five buildings currently on site get ready for their controversial demolition. In their places, a 300-room millennium-aimed hotel will rise, cites EV Grieve. According to the Real Deal, the property will be comprised of 85,000 square feet.
↑Another building at 86 Delancey is also getting ready to be demolished. The Department of Buildings has just approved demolition plans of the two-story building where optician Sol Moscot has been in place since 1936 before relocating across the street. In its place, a 29,437-square-foot building will rise that will encompass both luxury residential units and commercial space, reports Bowery Boogie. The site might also see a restaurant and "recreational" rooftop area, as per its proposal.
