10-Story ODA-Designed Condo Tops Out at 173 Chrystie Street

Posted on: July 26th, 2019 at 5:04 am by

Four years later, the second of two ODA-designed condo buildings on Chrystie Street is finally at the top.

The ten-story luxury compound recently hit its targeted height, capped with the token Stars-and-Stripes. It was certainly a slog to the finish line, as demolition of the former Neuman’s Catering building concluded in the summer of 2017.

Once fit-out is complete, the upscale development condo will yield a total floor area of 25,593 square-feet spread across 13 two- and three-bedroom apartments (and public roof terrace). Initial conpletion date was last year, so, you know, don’t hold your breath.

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.

With at least three new developments and the Public Hotel to its name, Chrystie Street between Houston and Delancey is becoming a gilded rest stop for the rich. Just pay no mind to the homeless in the park.
