Streit’s Matzo Factory Condo on Rivington Street Hits 3-Story Height

Posted on: December 14th, 2017 at 5:00 am by

The unleavened grounds of the former Streit’s Matzo Factory are now rising. And in a big way.

After nearly a year of foundation and underpinning work, the superstructure is beginning the proverbial skyward ascent. Now well past the plywood threshold. At last observation, the building is currently sitting at a roughly three-story height.

As previously reported, the family-owned Streit’s Matzo sold 148-154 Rivington Street to Cogswell Realty in January 2015 for $30.5 million. The glassy new seven-story replacement consists of 45 one-, two-, and three-bedroom condos, including four duplex penthouses on the seventh/eighth floor. Building amenities include bike room, gym, laundry, storage, and rooftop terrace with outdoor fireplace and kitchen.

For its part, Streit’s Matzo is still going strong. The Rockland County factory – the facility purchased after selling 148-154 Rivington Street – is up and running.
