After Rejected Seward Park Air Rights Deal, Developer Unveils Revised Plans for 28-Story Condo
Now nine months removed from the rejected $54 million sale of air rights from Seward Park Co-op, Round Square Development, formerly the Ascend Group, has changed its tune.
The plan for two monstrous towers on the sites flanking the Bialystoker Nursing Home building is now kaput. Instead, Round Square will drop a single condo development at 232 East Broadway that rises 28 stories and sports 55 luxury apartments. Round Square will also convert the landmark next door – 228 East Broadway – into an 18-unit condoplex. (They update to give a more “aesthetically pleasing feel.”)
The Dora Cohen Memorial Park at the corner of Clinton Street will remain, albeit as private amenity for condo owners.
Space 4 Architecture is the designer of record, which released the below image of the jagged newcomer.
There are no permits yet on file with Department of Buildings.
