Take a look. This is the glitzy new facelift awaiting the Land’s End I housing complex at 275 South Street, down on the Lower East Side waterfront. It’s an update that comes just a year after changing hands.

L+M Development Partners picked up the nineteen-story property last February for an undisclosed sum, with the plan to “make significant capital improvements to the property to reposition the building through common area upgrades, enhanced amenities and apartment renovations, while preserving it as a source of high-quality mixed-income housing in the Lower East Side.” Well, time has come.

Curbed published the first rendering of the new exterior, alongside some additional updates on the rehab project. Added amenities to the building include a new roof deck, renovated exterior with “special light features,” an in-house gym, community lounge with a chef’s kitchen, and a 24-hour doorman service. Lands End I boasts 256 rental apartments, half of which are earmarked for middle-income families.

Renovations should wrap in 2017, and current residents will reportedly have the option to renew leases.

The announcement arrives at a time when development along this stretch is going gangbusters. Extell and SHoP Architects/JDS Development both have controversial 80-story buildings in the works.
