Clinton Street Synagogue Gets 6-Story Luxury Neighbor

Posted on: August 9th, 2018 at 5:02 am by

When the Congregation Chasam Sofer listed its adjacent alleyway for sale last year, the end game became clear. More development. And that’s precisely what’s happening.

(The synagogue will no longer be freestanding.)

Developer Andres Hogg of Hogg Holdings picked up the property (aka 10 Clinton Street) in October 2017 for $4.1 million. The plan now is to drop a six-story glass box onto the narrow parcel, per YIMBY.

Hogg filed plans with Department of Buildings for the 65-foot luxury development, which will boast eight condo units splitting 6,430 square-feet. Roughly 1,479 square-feet is earmarked for commercial use. Condo dwellers will have access to storage units, laundry, a bicycle room, fitness center, and rooftop recreation area.

Fischer+Makooi Architect is on board for design duties.

Hogg has other holdings on the Lower East Side, including the new development at 287 East Houston Street.

In all, some 990 trees are being sawed into submission. […]
