East River Partners have just finished construction on their East Village condominium conversion of Adas Yisroel Anshe Mezritch Synagogue at 415 East 6th Street. Despite all appearances, these sprawling boutique units are built on the upper floors of a neoclassical synagogue building where the congregation will utilize its lower floors.

The synagogue was originally built in 1910 by German architect Herman Horenburger, an endeavor that cost a mere $15,000. Fast-forward a century later, the Mezritch owners realized that with growing financial difficulties and low attendance they could pay for the upkeep of the entire building. On the verge of being demolished, an answer to their prayers came when Joshua Kushner showed interest in converting the the structure 2008. However, controversy grew out of concerns that a house of worship should not share space with luxury units, leading Kushner Companies to propose tearing the building down entirely. Due to outcry from local preservationists, Kushner withdrew from the deal.

East River Partners entered an agreement with the congregation to lease the upper floors of the building for $1.2 million on a 99-year lease. Also part of the deal, the East River agreed to renovate the the ground and basement floors, keeping the Mezritch congregation from closing its doors.

The Congregation Mezritch Synagogue is the last neoclassical “tenement synagogue” in the East Village, and has garnered status as historically significant by the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation.

The conversion called for all exterior neoclassical details to remain intact, including details of the stone-and-brick and limestone façades, the original copper double-entry doors, the ornate architectural details and the original stained glass windows. From the apartment interiors, the windows add a dash of color among modernist aesthetic. A separate entrance for the homeowners has also been added.

The three carved-out units were designed to marry the historic with the modern, leaving the stained glass windows throughout the apartments —while retaining a muted contemporary palette that doesn't interfere with the synagogue's historic character. That said, interiors will adopt their own individual design, relying on modern detailing and clean lines with white/ gray hues. Units will sport high ceilings, capacious open concept living and dining areas, ample-sized bedrooms and streamlined kitchens with top-of-line appliances and fixtures.
