New 9-Story Condo Tower for Luxe Chrystie Street Corridor

Posted on: February 17th, 2022 at 5:01 am by

The stretch of Chrystie Street between Delancey and East Houston is a new Gold Coast. Nevermind the ongoing presence of drug-fueled violence and overall sketchiness in Sara D. Roosevelt Park.

(It’s also mere paces from the gruesome stabbing murder of Christina Yuna Lee.)

In the span of just a few short years, the scene-y Public Hotel, and a string of condo towers have entered the picture. Altering this commercial corridor into luxury life.

Yet, the pace of change is most palpable between Rivington and Delancey Streets. The small block recently suffered the construction of three new residential developments within fifty feet of each other. All designed by the same architect.

Now, a fourth.

The three-story structure last occupied by Centerlight at 183 Chrystie is to become another condo development. This tower will rise 94 feet to join the nascent Chrystie skyline, yielding 49,398 square-feet, with 47,699 square-feet designated for residential space. That translates into roughly 26 parkside condos.

David Paz of the Omnia Group – which developed the now defunct Sister City hotel on the Bowery – is the owner-developer. GF55 Partners is the architect of record on the project.
