As previously reported, the long-empty lot is yielding an 8-floor residential building featuring 28 residences. News of housing here dates to October 2019, when an array of city and federal officials came together during a press conference "to celebrate the commencement of the preservation and rehabilitation of project-based Section 8 housing in the East Village." During this event, officials noted that more affordable housing was set for this 10th Street parcel.
It appears that 30% of those 28 units will be considered "affordable." Here's more from the website of Goshow Architects:
[The building is] intended to interchangeably mix market rate (70%) and affordable (30%) dwelling units. In the interest of dignity-for-all, there is absolutely no distinction between the two: same size rooms, same kitchen appliances, same level of fit and finish.
The rendering at the lot lists a completion date of Sept. 1, 2023.
