A new rental development has been planned for 282 Grand St. in the Lower East Side, according to building applications reported by YIMBY.
The designer is Peterson Rich Office and the developer is Marc Strauss of Roman Grand, LLC.
YIMBY quotes the architect as observing:
The base building will be of the most straightforward construction, veiled behind a perforated aluminum rain-screen system that both echoes traditional fire escapes and performs environmentally, acting as a sun shading device and louvered panel for air exchange.
The DOB applications indicate that the project will occupy 23,763 sq. ft., with 3,074 sq. ft. of commercial and 14,300 sq. ft. of commercial space. There will be a first floor gallery and 20 rental apartments on the six stories above.
