GF55 Partners Architects has released a rendering for 64 East 1st Street, an East Village condo project developed by MGM Property Group. Demolition of the restaurant/lounge previously on the site is complete and excavation work has just begun. The new building will be situated in a tree lined mostly residential block near the F train with street level shops and a playground.
The building will contain 6 residences each averaging 1,900 s/f. The lower duplex will occupy the cellar and 1st floor with a private rear yard. Floors 2-5 are floor-through units with rear balconies. The upper duplex on the 6th and penthouse levels offer a rooftop terrace. Each unit will have two bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. Both baths and powder room will be outfitted with waterworks fittings and accessories. The floor plan will have a high end kitchen open to the living and dining areas. Amenities include a workout room on the first floor and a shared rooftop with a barbeque. The site sits between a 10-unit condo building built in 2007 and a boiler and welding shop that has been there for over 50 years.
