Demolition Commences for 10-Story ODA Condo at 165 Chrystie Street

For 165 Chrystie Street, death and inevitable rebirth are upon us. Scaffolding, plywood shed, and netting just went up yesterday signaling the start of demolition and eventual development. Get ready for ten floors serving the upper crust gentry.
You’ll recall that SoHo-based DRK Chrystie LLC acquired the two-story property a couple years ago for $8.4 million. Flashy ODA-Architecture was later tapped to design the ten-story replacement building. Plans for the luxury building were heretofore stuck in bureaucratic purgatory for two years, even as the demolition permits were approved and subsequently issued (December 2014 and January 2016, respectively).
The “disapproved” status no longer applies, though. Department of Buildings approved and issued permits to the applicant back in November. Much like its sister property at 100 Norfolk Street, it’s another boxy stack of glass (without the cantilever). It’ll boast nine full-floor dwellings (presumably condos) including a first-floor duplex across 17,188 square-feet of residential area.
With 173 Chrystie Street also slated for re-development, this block is gonna be in construction hell for the next few years.
