Early in November, renderings surfaced of the planned 12-story redevelopment of the single-story commercial building at 225 East Houston Street, on the Lower East Side, and now applications have been filed for the expansion project. The existing 17,471 square-foot property will be expanded to 41,000 square feet. The development will include a 6,800 square-foot ground-floor retail component and its 38 residential units will average 900 square feet apiece. Bluarch Architecture is responsible for the most recent renderings, but that firm is no longer working with the property owner, per Bowery Boogie; Rogers Architects is the architect of record. The existing former Provident Loan Society building is not a city landmark, but preservationist Christian Emanuel has filed a request for evaluation (RFE) with the Landmarks Preservation Commission.
