Another Look at Horizon Group’s Conversion of Historic Rivington Street Library into Luxury
The Beaux Arts library at 61 Rivington Street is amidst luxury conversion. Going on two years now. Finally, there is a rendering of what to expect here.
The Horizon Group, which acquired the historic building in May 2018 for $8.4 million, intends to impart this glassy twenty-foot extension atop the current four-story structure. The new glassy protrusion will deliver a total of approximately 14,000 square-feet of residential living split across eleven apartments.
Work onsite continues apace.
Issac Stern Achitects is the designer of record on the $848,000 endeavor, known as The Horizon at Rivington. The firm is also behind other familiar Lower East Side developments, including 50 Clinton Street and the Hotel Indigo.
Meanwhile, there is a long list of complaints and Department of Buildings actions, largely related to debris disposal (“there is debris falling out of windows”).
