287 East Houston Pulverized to Make Way for 11-Story Condo

It took only a few weeks, but that old single-story commercial building quartered at 287 East Houston is completely gone. Thrown down last month in the name of more luxury living. As is so often the case these days, the space is now just another vacant lot primed for construction.

This large gap will soon be plugged with an eleven-story condo tower. As previously reported, the 120-foot-tall replacement will boast twenty-eight apartments across 29,070 square-feet of floor area (1 to 3 bedrooms); 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.

Hogg Holdings is developing the land, having purchased the property in November 2014 for $15.2 million.

The hype website went live a couple months ago, offering a few extra bread crumbs. Namely, that Corcoran is the exclusive sales team, and that condo pricing will straddle the range of $1.1 to $5 million. Sales go live in Fall 2016.

Former Red Square Retail Demolished for New Development
