Rendering of 71 Fourth Avenue via NAVA Rendering of 71 Fourth Avenue via NAVA
It’s been more than a decade since redevelopment plans surfaced for a one-story strip of stores at the corner of Fourth Avenue and East 10th Street, near Astor Place. The narrow East Village lot has been vacant since 2007 and in that time, nearly a half-dozen plans have come and gone. Now, with groundwork underway, it seems the site’s time has finally come. Last year, the local architecture-development firm, NAVA received the green light to build a 10-story, 12-unit residential building at the 4,200-square-foot site.

A rendering of the proposed building (shown at the top) was recently published on NAVA’s website and shows an energetic design of cantilevers, setbacks and cutaways. The building appears to grow glassier as it rises and many of the units will be provided with outdoor spaces. SBLM Architects is listed as the applicant of record on building permits. One sad point to note is that the building's construction will completely obscure a mural of the Manhattan skyline painted on the adjacent building.

Per the floor schedule submitted to the DOB, the residential units will be large, signaling that they will likely be condos. The ground floor will hold 2,600 square feet of retail space and above will be a mix of half and full-floor units. The top two floors will be home to a duplex penthouse with outdoor space. Upper-level units will have views of Grace Church’s buildings and spire.
Nava recently finished a striking new condo building at 210 Pacific Street in Boerum Hill. Tomorrow, the firm's Tribeca condo project at 41 White Street will seek design approvals from the Landmarks Preservation Commission.
