​It’s been a long time coming for 287 East Houston Street. The two-parcel property – acquired by Hogg Holdings in late 2014 for $15.2 million – is slated to become eleven stories of luxury residential living.

Permits were originally filed for the new construction last summer, but the site had otherwise remained mum. Until now; the release of an accompanying illustration. The below renderings show what will happen when 287 East Houston is leveled and cleared.

As previously reported, the 120-foot-tall building will boast twenty-eight units across 29,070 square-feet of floor area; plus a penthouse duplex. There will also be bicycle parking and storage space in the basement, plus an exercise room on the first floor. Jeffrey Cole Architects and AA Studio teamed up on the design.

Permits, however, remain in purgatory as the Department of Buildings still lists a “disapproved” status on the property.

Retail is not a component here, as the zoning does not allow this use. You’ll recall that maligned landlord Samy Mahfar and his cronies sought a commercial overlay variance that includes this block for his development at 255 East Houston. Community Board 3 sent him, and the proposal, packing last month.
