Two Chrystie Street warehouse buildings are on the way out. Demolition is underway at both in order to usher in a new era of ODA-designed luxury.

First up is 165 Chrystie Street, a stout brick box that hasn’t functioned in years. A restaurant supply company previously operated in the base, but not since moving across to 38 Delancey. The ten-story replacement will boast nine full-floor dwellings (presumably condos) including a first-floor duplex across 17,188 square-feet of residential area.

Demolition is pretty much complete here; The building is pulverized and the lot nearly empty.

The former Neuman’s Kitchen spot at 173 Chrystie isn’t as far along, though. Asbestos abatement posters are out and the interior is already stripped bare with daylight peeking through the gaps. And while a demolition permit was approved by Department of Buildings last fall, the serious work has yet to commence. Probably because the plans for its replacement are still in bureaucratic purgatory.

173 Chrystie Street is bare

As previously reported, Neuman’s Kitchen decamped for a larger facility in Long Island City back in March. They held down the block for two decades. In its place, another ten-story construction with total floor area of 25,265 square-feet spread across 13 units (and private roof deck).
