10-Story ODA-Designed Condo Begins its Ascent at 173 Chrystie

Posted on: November 1st, 2017 at 5:03 am by

With work advancing quickly at 165 Chrystie Street, the second of two ten-story, ODA-designed condo projects on the block is finally proceeding. Demolition of the old tenements comprising number 173 concluded over the summer, priming the parcel for the new payload.

Indeed, the pile-driver machinery posted up a couple weeks ago, and is already busy ground rattling. Once complete, the new luxury condo building will boast total floor area of 25,593 square-feet spread across 13 two- and three-bedroom apartments (and public roof terrace). Tentative (moving) target is sometime in 2018.

You’ll recall that Yaniv Cohen of Acmos on Chrystie LLC purchased the property in September 2014 with the intention of developing, alongside Nexus Development, this new ten-story luxury condo.

Completion was originally set for sometime in 2018 but that seems unlikely.

These ancient tenements previously served as the nineteen-year headquarters of Neuman’s Kitchen before their departure to Long Island City in March 2016. The site had functioned as the “commissary” building that housed the kitchen and tasting room.
