Delancey Street Tenement to Gain 4-Story Addition
Undergoing renovations for the last year or so, 108 Delancey Street is now stepping into the proverbial spotlight.
Permits previously filed with Department of Buildings reveal a partial demolition and four-story addition slated to top the stout tenement building. Once work is complete, the reimagined property – owned by controversial landlord Samy Mahfar – will yield a mix of retail and office space comprising a total 14,000 square feet. It’s a far cry from the former uses as Popeyes chicken and a Sprint mobile store.
The retail component will comprise 2,250 square-feet on the ground level.
In a nod to the popular Anthony Bourdain mural that graced the adjacent storefront after his death (painted by Bradley Theodore), the ground-floor lobby to the offices will reportedly feature new artwork of the late chef by artist Jon Leonardo. Office suites up above comprise a total 2,800 square-feet including rooftop recreational area.
Marin Architects, designer of record, released the above rendering.
Mahfar also owns the property next door, which will soon boast a Mount Sinai group clinic medical facility.
