Elizabeth Street Parking Garage Boarded Up; Luxury Development Coming Soon

The parking garage at 152 Elizabeth Street (aka 14 Kenmare) is no longer in operation. Its years as a carpark will soon be supplanted by luxury housing.

Earlier this week, plywood boards were placed at the entrance with asbestos abatement notices in tow. No parking signs, too (oh, the irony). As previously reported, this brick big-boy at the corner of Elizabeth and Kenmare was purchased by Sumaida + Khurana for $21 million. Esteemed architect Tadao Ando is helming design duties for the project, which will reportedly “incorporate a bit of the area’s gritty character.”

Now the residential conversion is underway. The developer filed paperwork in April to “vertically extend” the existing four-story building. But it’s still under review by the Department of Buildings. What we do know, however, is that the $11 million project will rise seven stories (83 feet) and consist of eight (presumably full-floor) apartment units totaling 27,090 square-feet.

Welcome to yet another construction zone. See you in a few years.
