Delancey Street Tenement Cleared Ahead of 8-Story Payload
There’s a new commercial development underway on Delancey Street, and progress is now visible.
Permits previously filed with Department of Buildings for 108 Delancey had revealed a partial demolition and four-story addition slated to top the stout tenement building. In reality, the job was more or less a full demolition and redevelopment from the ground up.
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 artwork of the late chef by artist Jon Leonardo. Office suites up above comprise a total 2,800 square-feet including rooftop recreational area.
