The Spanish Delancey Seventh Day Adventist Church, located at the four-story building at 126 Forsyth Street, on the corner of Delancey Street on the Lower East Side, is looking for a development partner that would demolish the existing structure for a new building. The 5,000 square-foot lot could accommodate a new mixed-use building of up to 32,500 square feet, where a maximum of 27,000 square feet could be used as residential space. The lot is subject to a 120-foot height cap, according to Curbed NY. The church is requiring the first three floors of the new building to be designed, owned, and operated by the church as a house of worship, although zoning allows for retail space to be built as well. It should be noted that the rest of the building could potentially end up being a hotel or office space if a developer chooses against building residential units.

  1. STOP DESTROYING BEAUTIFUL OLD BUILDINGS TO BUILD UGLY GLASS RICH PEOPLE TOWERS. Aren’t here plenty of parking lots, garages, industrial buildings, etc, that can be destroyed?
