The full foundation is not even poured, and already the buzzards are circling the carcass of the former Nativity Mission School on Forsyth Street. Interior renderings for the eleven-story replacement tower are presently making the rounds, uploaded this week to social media by celebrity broker Fredrik Eklund.

There is also a new splash page for 204 Forsyth proclaiming the address as “edgy refinement/east of SoHo.”

As previously reported, the new luxury building will top out at seven stories (80 feet) and carry eleven two- and three-bedroom units. Total floor area at 204 Forsyth is 19,860 square-feet, according to permits on file with the Department of Buildings. Other amenities include parking garage, bike storage, common recreation space (cellar), and private roof-deck for the seventh floor apartment. Z Architecture is handling design of the high-end project.

Feces-throwing money man Charles Saulson is the owner-developer here. He purchased 204 Forsyth two years ago. Before its demise, the 1927-era tenement was the forty-year home of the Jesuit-run Nativity Mission School whose mission was to fight poverty on the Lower East Side.
