Back in March, the six-story, 82-unit mixed-use building began to rise at the block-thru plot at 438 East 12th Street, in the East Village. The complex now appears to be topped out, according to photos by EV Grieve. Dubbed Steiner East Village, it is to encompass 151,943 square feet. That will include 8,376 square feet of ground-floor retail space and a 961-square-foot medical offices, also on the ground floor. Its 82 condominiums, averaging 1,315 square feet apiece, will come in one- to four-bedroom configurations. Amenities include a pool and spa, a gym, a library, a children’s playroom, a courtyard, and rooftop gardens. Douglas Steiner’s New Jersey-based Steiner Equities Group, doing business as their New York arm Steiner NYC, is the developer, while S9 Architecture is behind the design. Paris Forino is responsible for the interiors and Future Green Studio is the landscape designer. Completion can be expected in 2017.
YIMBY last brought you an update on the 30-story, 83-unit mixed-use building under development at 200 East 95th Street, at the corner of Third Avenue on the Upper East Side, when rebar was rising from the foundation in March. Now, the structure is four stories above street level and quickly rising, as seen in a photo by Tectonic via the YIMBY Forums.
