Great Jones Street plan OK’d
The Blumenfeld Development Group (BDG) has received final approval and will begin the redevelopment of 41 Great Jones Street in the Noho Historic District.
The project entails the conversion of the 12,000 s/f, five-story masonry and cast iron building, into three luxury condominium units (two duplexes and one triplex).
During construction, an additional floor will be added with a rooftop terrace for outdoor lounging and entertaining.
In addition, BDG will restore and preserve historic aspects of the building, including the decorative cornice and stabilizing the façade.
“We appreciate the opportunity to demonstrate the benefits that our project will bring by restoring the building,” said David Blumenfeld, president, BDG Construction Corp.
“We would like to thank the local officials for their support and look forward to starting construction and preserving another example of architecture that makes this district so special.ˮ
Construction is scheduled to begin November 1, 2015.
