The retail at East River Plaza was constructed with infrastructure to accommodate the future construction of residential towers atop the multi-level shopping center. The Owners are in the early stages of pre-development of the residential towers, including conceptual design studies with the design architect, TEN Arquitectos, headed by Enrique Norten. TEN has focused on creating an iconic design that will integrate the surrounding neighborhood of El Barrio.
As the residential development will be built atop the existing retail center and will overlook the East River, the design will take advantage of the retail platform below, as well as the incredible river views.
Construction is anticipated to begin late 2015 or early 2016 and should take approximately 24 months.
