The last parking garage on Kenmare Street closed at the end of June and is already under the knife. Time has come. The gift box wrapping of nets and bars arrived last month, alongside announcements of the requisite rat baiting throughout the premises. After just a week of demolition activity, the the top floor is dismantled.

As previously disclosed, DHA Capital purchased 75 Kenmare Street for $50 million last spring, and plans to erect a 55,000-square-foot mixed-use property comprised of retail, residential, and, ironically, parking. The project will apparently boast “more efficient units” (i.e. 1,000 square-feet) in tune with the housing stock offered at its sister LES development, 50 Clinton. Expect to pay between $1.7 million and $12 million for the 35 condos (1BR-4BR) when sales go live in the fall.

Lenny Kravitz is on board as the interior designer, vis-a-vis Kravitz Design. The firm will impart decor with metal, oak, and “unique natural stone” element.

Opening is expected sometime in 2018. Don’t hold your breath, though.
