The gradual disappearance of businesses along the only low-rise strip of Clinton Street was part of a grand plan for another development. With the passage of each commercial tenant, rumors abounded about what might take its place (Rothstein’s Hardware is still there, but moving soon). We kept hearing mixed-use residential, as first reported here back in January. And that’s precisely what’s happening.

EV Grieve has the scoop on the renderings of the new building that will drop here at 50-62 Clinton. Apparently Isaac & Stern Architects, the team working the Orchard Hell Building, is also behind the project. They’ve paired up with Icon Realty who owns the property.

It’s described as:

Mix use building, residential and commercial.

7 story over cellar, approximately 50,000 sf.

This strip of Clinton St. will likely fall in the coming months
