YIMBY went to check out 3 St. Mark’s Place in the East Village, where an eight-story mixed-use office building is set to rise. Approved by the New York City’s Landmarks Preservation Commission in the summer of 2019, the nearly 54,000-square-foot project is designed by Morris Adjmi Architects and developed by Real Estate Equities Corporation. In addition to construction of the new structure at the intersection of St. Mark’s Place and Third Avenue, plans also call for exterior alterations to an adjacent historic landmark at 4 Saint Mark’s Place, known as the Hamilton Holly House.
3 Saint Mark’s Place
This week New York City’s Landmarks Preservation Commission granted approval to construct a new mixed-use office building at 3 St. Mark’s Place in the East Village, following repeated proposals from Real Estate Equities Corporation (REEC) and Morris Adjmi Architects. Located on the corner of Third Avenue and St. Mark’s Place, the development caused contention over its proposed alterations to an adjacent historic landmark at 4 Saint Mark’s Place known as Hamilton Holly House.
Morris Adjmi Architects will appear yet again before the Landmarks Preservation Commission with proposals to construct a new mixed-use office development in the East Village. Located at 3 St. Mark’s Place, the property is positioned on the corner of 3rd Avenue and St. Mark’s Place. The draft proposals also include alterations to an existing structure at 4 St. Mark’s Place and the transfer of approximately 8,400 square feet of build rights to facilitate construction of the new office building.
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.
