​It’s been about a year since 173 Chrystie Street changed hands for $15 million. One Yaniv Cohen of “Acmos on Chrystie LLC” purchased the property with the intention of developing a new ten-story luxury condo tower.

Well, the first real step toward that goal was reached last week. The owners submitted demolition permits to the Department of Buildings, and are almost ready to proceed. You see, the paperwork on file with the DOB is still listed as disapproved. Until then, there’s the facts.

Upon completion in 2018 (tentative, naturally), the ten-story building will sport total floor area of 25,265 square-feet spread across 13 units (and private roof deck). Doing the math, that’s roughly 2,000 square-feet per apartment. There will also be amenities like cellar gym and bike storage, according to the pending DOB documents on file.

ODA Architecture was tapped for design duties, and has since released the following rendering of what we can expect at 173 Chrystie. Nexus Development is the developer of record on the project.

Of course, this is all bad news for Neuman’s Catering which will likely fold operations into its other office a few blocks north on Chrystie Street.
