A half-block from the Public Hotel, another tower is poised to rise.

Where 199-201 Chrystie Street once stood, there is now a hole in the ground waiting for a fourteen-story luxury payload. And this is what it’ll look like.

Work just began on the condo project within the last few weeks.

Owner-developer KD Sagamore, which scooped up the 199 and 201 Chrystie over the last several years for a combined $20 million, filed for re-development back in December 2017. The plans included merging both parcels into one tax lot. Department of Buildings didn’t issue permits until a couple months ago, though.

As previously reported, the new fourteen-story development will yield 39,188 square-feet of residential space split between 14 apartments, ground level retail, gym, and rooftop terrace. Each apartment will measure roughly 2,565 square-feet on average.

Architect of record is R. Wade Johnson.

Expected completion is Spring 2021.

August 2015
