Permits Filed for 30-Story Bialystoker Tower on East Broadway
Two months after the former Bialystoker Nursing Home began its path to a gilded future, the birth of more luxury on the east flank has begun.
Round Square Development (née Ascend Group) filed the first permits last week to construct a thirty-story tower at 232 East Broadway. It’s a jagged mess of condos that will dot the block and likely usher in further gentrification here.
The 84,271 square-foot building will boast 54 apartments, each averaging about 1,397 square-feet. The steel-based structure also has a pool in the basement and a 30-foot-long rear yard.
This new skyline alteration is the result of a failed air rights sale from the Seward Park Co-op. Had the vote carried by all residents, the cooperative would be $54 million richer and a two-towered design would have carried.
