The upward progress of 287 East Houston is really heating up. Several months into construction activities, the forthcoming condo building has breached the plywood perimeter, and now sits at three stories. That’s roughly a quarter of its final height.

Upon completion, the 120-foot-tall brick-and-steel replacement will boast twenty-eight apartments across 29,070 square-feet of floor area (1 to 3 bedrooms); plus a penthouse duplex with private terrace. There will also be a public roof deck with outdoor kitchen, bicycle parking and laundry in the basement, and an exercise room on the first floor. Jeffrey Cole Architects and AA Studio joined forces for the design.

Seven units are still available, including the aforementioned penthouse for $2.95 million. Don’t all jump at once.

The reimagined 287 East Houston is jointly developed by Hogg Holdings and Vinci Partners USA, a Brazilian firm on its maiden American project. The site was acquired in November 2014 for $15.2 million, and now joins a half-dozen other luxury projects in varying states of construction along the busy corridor.
