Lower East Side
Rice+Lipka Architects recently returned to New York City’s Landmarks Preservation Commission with revised proposals to modernize and expand the Choicirciati Cultural Center. Located at 64 East 4th Street in Manhattan’s East Village, the center functions primarily as a Latin American theatre and performance venue.
Among New York’s current major developers, Extell has perhaps the most notable portfolio when it comes to sheer height. Though Central Park Tower may become the tallest building in Manhattan by roof and Brooklyn Point will do the same for that borough, the firm’s penchant for prominence is best visualized through One Manhattan Square, aka OMS, which sticks out of its underbuilt neighborhood fabric like the Lower East Side’s own version of the Eiffel Tower. The skyscraper topped-out in September of 2017, but installation of the façade only wrapped this month. Last week, YIMBY took a tour of the building’s penthouse residences and sales gallery, and today we have a look at its almost-finished exterior, as well as an update on the ever-changing views from the top.
Located at 185 Bowery on the Lower East Side, at the intersection of Bowery and Delancey Street, New York City’s newest CitizenM hotel has finished construction, and is officially now the tallest modular hotel in the United States and the world.
Right next to the pedestrian walkway entrance for the Williamsburg Bridge, Essex Crossing is already reinventing Manhattan’s Lower East Side. The nine-building development will cost over one billion dollars and create nearly two million square feet across a six-acre area, and the aerial scope of construction is now expanding well beyond the initial first new two structures.
