The Forsyth Street lot formerly known as the Nativity Mission remains a hole in the ground one year after its demolition. Z Architecture is designing the well-heeled luxury replacement, a new condo development which will reach eighty feet into the sky. And the firm just released this updated rendering.

Snow be damned, the construction workers continue excavation and foundation activities for the new complex. The completed project will eventually top out at seven stories 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.

Current state of affairs on Forsyth, Feb. 2015

Meanwhile, in another instance of geographically challenged broker hype, the 204 Forsyth address is heralded as “edgy refinement/east of SoHo” on the property website.

Notorious feces-throwing money man Charles Saulson is the owner-developer who acquired 204 Forsyth in 2012. Before its demise, the 1927-era tenement was the forty-year home of the Jesuit-run Nativity Mission School whose goal was fighting poverty on the Lower East Side.

Ironic, eh?
