The former headquarters of the Jesuit-run Nativity Mission School is gone from the Lower East Side landscape. Its eighty-six years standing at 204 Forsyth Street came to an end this week. Demolition crews diligently dismantled the brickwork these last couple months, and now nothing is left.

This lot and its adjacent parking parcel will be born again as luxury living. As previously noted, former feces-throwing property owner Charles Saulson is dropping seven stories (80 feet) of glass at this address in the coming year. Z Architecture is handling the design of this “high-end residential development.”

DOB paperwork reveals that the building contains eleven units; total floor area is 19,860 square-feet. Other components include parking garage, bike storage, common recreation space (cellar), and private roofdeck for the seventh floor apartment.

And, as a reminder, this is an illustration of what we’re getting:
