As reported in New York Yimby, construction is progressing at the mixed-use buildings at 55 Suffolk Street and 64 Norfolk Street on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Together the two buildings will comprise the Broome Street Development, a 387,223 square-foot complex developed by Gotham Organization.
The first four stories of 55 Suffolk Street are currently visible, along with a recently erected construction crane. The structure of 64 Norfolk Street is at street level but is expected to begin rising shortly. The entire Broome Street Development is expected to be completed by June 2023.
Broome Street Development will create 488 rental units, of which 209 will be permanently affordable housing. 55 Suffolk Street will include a new headquarters for the Chinese-American Planning Council, while 64 Norfolk will be the new home of the Beth Hamedrash Hagodol synagogue and cultural center.
