Construction is wrapping up on 199 Chrystie Street, a 14-story residential building on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Designed by Thomas Juul-Hansen and developed by KD Sagamore Capital, which purchased the plot for $20 million, the 39,188-square-foot building will yield 14 homes in a staggered layout overlooking Sara D. Roosevelt Park. The project site is located near the intersection of Chrystie and Stanton Streets and was previously home to two buildings, 199 and 201 Chrystie Street.
Since our last update in July, work has progressed on the mechanical extension and the scaffolding surrounding it has begun to be dismantled. Some minor work remains to be completed around the ground floor, which is still fenced off.
The main eastern façade features a series of interlocking L-shaped volumes. All of the private terraces are lined with glass railings.
Below are renderings seen on 199 Chrystie Street’s main website. Residences have ceiling heights ranging as high as 18′ 3″ in the living areas of all duplex units and are finished with European Oak, wide-plank hardwood flooring, rift sawn dark stained oak closet millwork, laundry closets and rooms with utility sinks, externally vented washer and dryers by Whirlpool, and individually controlled multi-zone heating and cooling.
Kitchens come with Obsidian Black Miele appliances including a four- or five-burner cooktop, a speed oven, a convection oven, and externally vented stainless steel built-in hood. They also feature a dishwasher, wine storage, a SubZero refrigerator and freezer, platinum matte Dornbracht faucets, Montpellier Gris cross-cut honed marble countertops and backsplashes, rift sawn stained white oak and tempered bronze glass cabinetry with antique brass metal accents and trims, and stainless steel Kraus sinks with a garbage disposal.
The master bathrooms feature Quarter Sawn walnut cabinetry, honed marble surrounding soaking tubs, countertops, walls and floors; Dornbracht fixtures and accessories with antique brass metal accents and trims; bronze-tinted mirrored medicine cabinets with cove lighting; and a remote controlled Toto toilet. The secondary bathrooms will be finished with Bianco Dolomite honed marble floors, walls, and vanities with lacquer cabinetry; Cloudy Mist honed marble for showers and tubs surrounded with cove lighting; Dornbracht fixtures and accessories with blackened metal accents and trims; custom mirrored medicine cabinets with additional vanity lighting; and a Duravit toilet. The powder rooms get honed Fantasia Quartzite carved block vanities and floors with cove lighting; plain sawn fumed white oak wainscoting; Dornbracht fixtures and accessories with antique brass metal accents and trims; and a Duravit toilet.
Each of the penthouses contain six bedrooms spread over 4,5000 square feet per unit. Penthouse one features 562 square feet of private outdoor space split between a west-facing balcony and terrace found off the great room. Penthouse two has 180 square feet of balcony space on the lower level with one directly off the kitchen and a 1,942-square-foot rooftop terrace with an outdoor kitchen, fire pit, and plunge pool. These two homes get Obsidian Black Miele appliances including a double gas burner with a Teppanyaki Griddle Combiset, a 24-inch speed oven, a 30-inch convection oven, an externally vented stainless steel built-in hood measuring three feet wide, a 30-inch warming drawer, a dishwasher, and a two-foot-tall wine storage space. Other aspects are a walk-in pantry, Siberian white honed marble, and a floor-to-ceiling antique brass fireplace.
199 Chrystie Street will feature an attended lobby, a fitness facility, private storage available for purchase, bicycle storage, elevator cabs fitted with honed Terrazzo Tile flooring, low-iron mirrors with fully tempered glass, and a bronze burnished trim, a mail and package room, and a superintendent and porter services.
Completion was originally slated for this past September, as stated on the on-site construction board. But it looks like 199 Chrystie Street will fully conclude with construction sometime later this fall.
