The 6-Story Future of 301 Broome Street
Another single-story relic on the Lower East Side will soon yield to luxury. This time, it’s on Broome Street.
The squat warehouse at 301 Broome, formerly the Simon Preston Gallery, is on the shortlist for redevelopment. Building owner Winnie Lee will soon demolish the property to make way for a six-story mixed-use structure.
Permits were filed earlier this month for the proposed 68-foot-tall development. Upon completion, it’ll add 9,439 square-feet, with 6,285 square-feet earmarked for residential space and 1,025 square-feet for commercial use. The building will only house four apartments, most likely condos based on size. A cellar and 29-foot-long rear yard are also in the plans.
nARCHITECTS is the design firm of record, which also counts the Switch Building of Norfolk Street on its resume.
