One Manhattan Papaya King is no more, with demolition permits filed for the former single-story structure at 3 Saint Mark’s Place in the East Village in mid-March. Now, permits have been submitted for a five-story retail and office building in its stead. Saint Mark’s has a vibrant and thriving cultural legacy, featuring a diversity of retail and restaurants. This permit will bring a bit of modernization to the Third Avenue gate to the street. Real Estate Equities Corporation is responsible for the development.

The 78-foot tall structure will yield 29,030 square feet for commercial space. Retail will occupy a portion of the ground floor and cellar space. The offices will have a lobby on the first floor, with workspace occupying the rest of the structure. Tenants will have access to bicycle storage, a fitness center, golf simulator, an amenities foyer, and a rooftop terrace.

Morris Adjmi Architects will be responsible for the design. While renderings have not been released for this project, the architect’s renderings for 119-121 2nd Avenue, just one block from 3 Saint Marks Place, can provide a hint for how the firm approaches design in the East Village.

The estimated completion date has not been announced.
