With ‘Sin-é’ Building on Attorney Street Gone, New Condos Ready to Rise

Posted on: November 28th, 2017 at 5:12 am by

Cherish the memories of all those shows you saw at Sin-é ten years ago because its former abode is completely gone. Vanished in the name of luxury living.

Instead, the tiny mid-block parcel is crammed tight with both backhoe and other construction sundries. The redevelopment has begun.

The property at 148-150 Attorney has been a target of development for the last several years, though. Plans were initially filed, and approved, in the summer of 2015 for a six-story condo development designed by Issac & Stern Architects. But the project was shelved and put on the market in November of that year. Two Kings Real Estate scooped up the old rock club for $3.8 million last January, and is following through on the original proposal.

Only the design is now different, as evidenced by the project signage affixed to the perimeter. (That stop-work order you see was for “failure to safeguard all persons and properties,” but was fully rescinded on November 22.)

According to the updated plans filed with the Department of Buildings in March, the six-story project will boast 7,000 square-feet of residential space spread across six full-floor condos. The city finally gave its official approval for the job two weeks ago.

When Delancey Street McDonald’s Reopens, it’ll be Supersized on 2 Floors

Three months into major gut renovations, you would have no idea that McDonald’s served here for some two decades. Gone is the red-and-yellow branding (except a few “remodeling” signs), stripped from the marquee and replaced with plywood boards. But McDonald’s will indeed return to life in the coming months. Super-sized, at that. Indeed, take a […]
