Six-Story Row House Replacement Tops out on Grand Street
At the corner of Essex and Grand Streets, two hundred years of history are officially erased. This six-story building – luxury condos – is the future.
The drama here is more than four years in the making. After purchasing 355 Grand Street for $4 million in December 2014, Interboro Properties spent the next two years demolishing a structure that had been on the corner since the 1820s. Flowers Cafe and Vic’s Pizza didn’t survive, either. (The cafe is made a comeback down the block on Essex, though.) The six-story mixed-use building will boast two enormous apartments spanning 4,653 square-feet – one duplex and one triplex – and a 2,282 square-foot commercial unit.
Judging by the project site signage, the design is bland enough to fit in with most of the new development happening in the immediate vicinity.
