A year-end look at the Streit's-replacing condoplex
Here's 150 Rivington, the 7-story glass condoplex with 45 one- and two-bedroom residences at Rivington and Suffolk... a corner better known as the longtime home of Streit’s Matzo Factory from 1925 to 2015.
The last time we checked in on the site — back in March — workers had recently reached the top level. Now it's looking close to completion, clad in floor-to-ceiling glass and 265 custom-cast panels.
The 150 Rivington website lists five residences still available (sales started in 2016). As for the interior, Christopher Robbins at Gothamist toured the new condoplex back in October. (Link here.)
The family-owned business sold its original factory to Cogswell Realty in January 2015 for a reported $30.5 million.
Streit's, who left the LES in 2015, now operates out of more modern facilities in Rockland County. (Here's a story about how they're doing today.)
And here's the slot for the future new ABC No Rio next door...
The city signed off on the new building permit in mid-November, and construction is expected to start in early 2019.
