Some serious height is coming to a bustling corner of East Broadway in Chinatown.

The former home of a Mobil gas station, 2 Pike Street – nay, rebranded as 100 East Broadway – will soon be reincarnated as fourteen stories (180 feet) of glassy commercial condos (“boutique office condominium”). The single level convenience store of yore was quickly demolished in the fall of 2015, clearing the way for this primary payload. Perimeter plywood arrived a few months later, and it’s been all systems go since then.

Now that the project is finally above ground – the steel beams began arriving last week – we finally have an updated view of what’s to come. With more neighborhood context. The new building will consist of 46,000 square-feet of commercial, and an as-yet-undetermined community facility.

100 East Broadway is advertising said commercial condos as perfect for “medical and professional use.”

As reported, the 9,800 square-foot (overgrown) parcel sold two years ago this month for an eye-popping $18.75 million. It was an operational gas station until June 2009. Developer Shing Wah Yeung of Yeung Real Estate Development was the buyer-developer.
