3 Years Later, One of the Priciest LES Condo Developments Revealed on Forsyth Street

Posted April 19, 2017 at 5:12 am

It was three years ago – an eternity – when the Nativity Mission School at 204 Forsyth Street was razed in the name of luxury living. The self-proclaimed “edgy refinement” of the replacement structure is now in full view. Down came the scaffolding and netting earlier this week. Gone also is the external boiler system […]

The upward progress of 287 East Houston is really heating up. Several months into construction activities, the forthcoming condo building has breached the plywood perimeter, and now sits at three stories. That’s roughly a quarter of its final height. Upon completion, the 120-foot-tall brick-and-steel replacement will boast twenty-eight apartments across 29,070 square-feet of floor area […]

Posted December 5, 2016 at 5:00 am

Annabelle Selldorf’s 13-story Bowery condo building is now showing off its luxe zinc-paneled facade.

Posted August 4, 2016 at 9:22 am

To peer into the Streit’s Matzo factory these days is an eerie sight. The nose is no longer tickled by the sublime scents of baking dough, but rather assaulted by the musty onslaught of crumbled brick and cement. It feels very much like a spooky graveyard.

Posted August 1, 2016 at 5:12 am

It’s been a couple years since we checked in with Tadao Ando’s condo project in Little Italy. That time was spent demolishing the former parking garage and, presumably, on underpinning work around the project site. Concrete construction progress really wasn’t too notable until recently. The new 152 Elizabeth Street (aka 14 Kenmare) is only now […]
