Here's what the new condoplex at 118 E. 1st St. will look like

Back on Monday, we noted that construction had started in the empty lot at 118 E. First St. between Avenue A and First Avenue.

At that point, there hadn't been any sign of renderings for the 9-story condoplex with ground-floor retail.

However, workers affixed the rendering on the plywood yesterday. And here ya go...

As previously noted, the 9-story residential building will include seven units divided over 12,500 square feet of residential space — most likely condos. And from the look of the rendering, everyone will have a terrace to take in the sights and sounds of the tranquil East Houston Street and Essex intersection.

Warren Freyer's Freyer Architects is designing the building. The developers have been previously ID'd as Acacia 118, LLC, based in Nolita, and fronted by Cynthia Wu and Robert Marty.

Previously on EV Grieve:
118 E. 1st St. arrives on the market with so many possibilities, and air rights

118 E. 1st. St. will yield to a new 9-floor residential building

Demolition of 118 E. 1st St. begins to make way for 9-story residential building

Construction starts at 118 E. 1st St., future home of a 9-floor residential building



Does it come with that mold?

Well people always say they want building'thaf fit the aesthetic of the neighborhood. Other than the height the design of this one seems pretty consistent. Not bad.

Another exquisitely hideous offering brought to you by the twisted minds of what pass for architects in this day and age.

Yay. Grieve, any idea what's going on with that crap going up (or not) by the Rite Aid at 1st Ave. and 4th Street? They've had a sidewalk shed blocking the bike lane and pushing cyclists out into motor vehicle traffic for what seems like well over a year to me, and I don't see shit happening there.

That development next to Rite Aid has been stalled since the middle of January. I did a post in February about it... time to update. DOB records show that there's an outstanding $10,000 penalty due as well for "failure to designate and/or have a construction superintendent present as required."

This development will deprive multiple apartments at 114 East 1st Street of light, turning their windows into shafts. The design reflects total lack of concern for the neighbors by aggressive developers.
