Looking at the new residential building for 13th Street and University Place

We haven't walked by the now-demolished stretch of University Place between 12th Street and 13th Street in some time.

So we hadn't seen the rendering for the new residential building for the corner space at 13th Street...

New York Yimby previously reported that a Adjmi Architects-designed seven-story residential building (condos) is in the works... good for one unit per floor on top of 3,200 square feet of ground-floor retail.

The corner previously housed University Place Gourmet as well as several adjacent storefronts, including Bennie Louie Chinese Laundry.

Developer Ranger Properties paid $22 million for the lot, and sent everyone packing.

Meanwhile, next door, 23 floors of condos are going up at the former home of Bowlmor Lanes and several other businesses. That building will be called 21E12.

Previously on EV Grieve:
Building that houses Bowlmor Lanes will convert to condos, like everywhere else around here

76-year-old Bowlmor Lanes closes for good today

Bowlmor says goodbye

Bowlmor Lanes replacement: 23-floor residential building

Major changes coming to University Place and East 13th Street

How about some more condos for University Place

Here's what's left of the block of University Place that once housed Bowlmor Lanes

It looks like some random administration building on a random college campus. This is not a compliment by the way.

Anon. 12:23, exactly what I thought when I saw the rendering. That crappy 1970s shadowbox style of "architecture" so beloved of college administrators everywhere has NO BUSINESS being utilized in New York, but since New York no longer cares about the buildings it vomits out, I guess we're stuck. Every single architectural firm doing business in the city today should be hanging their heads in shame, and vowing to start thinking out of the hideous bland box. But we know that won't happen. It's architectural fast food now - cheap, quick, and all the same.

Adapt or move. You have the entire globe to choose from...including places where it's quite lovely and quiet!
