The condoplex coming to 3 E. Third St. just off the Bowery recently made its first appearance above the plywood.
Inspiron, the project's construction manager, has the details on what to expect:
The Building is a concrete design that will be roughly 13,400 square-feet. The space will be split between residential spaces on the upper floors with luxurious roof top access and commercial space on the lower floors. The project is anticipated to be complete in the spring of 2019.
Since the last look at the site, the building has been modified.

And now the updated rendering ...
Here's CityRealty on what's different:
[T]he building has been reduced by one floor, the setback removed, and will use metal instead of stone. The design will complement the austere zinc façade of Selldorf’s tower next door, and be clad in a glass and metal curtain wall of full-height windows, metal fins, and I-beam like spandrel sections.
The former building at this site most recently served as short-term rentals for students and interns.
