Another JDS and SHoP Architects collaboration, 247 Cherry Street will be a 77 story, mixed-income rental building of 639 units on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. 25% of the building will be permanently designated as affordable units, distributed throughout the building. Clad in green terra cotta, the building includes sky decks, a community garden and meeting space, as well as significant improvements to the neighboring building to ensure that it remains a source of affordable, high-quality homes for the next generation.
New landscaping, a community courtyard, outdoor seating, and improvements to the pedestrian streetscape are designed by SCAPE Landscape Architecture.
247 Cherry Street will create high-quality local jobs during construction and long-term local employment through new retail and building services
25% (approx. 160 units) will be permanently designated as affordable housing. All affordable units will be integrated throughout the building and all tenants will have access to the same amenities.
