Being developed by Slate Property Group and Adam America Real Estate, 51 Jay Street has been taken from a three-story, 52-foot-tall structure to a seven-story, 74-foot-tall one, having officially topped out in December 2015. The conversion’s design is the product of the prolific ODA New York, run by architect Eran Chen.
There will be 74 units, divided as follows: two studios (averaging 664 square feet), eight one-bedrooms (averaging 850 square feet), 40 two-bedrooms (averaging 1,425 square feet), 17 three-bedrooms (averaging 2,250 square feet), six four-bedrooms (averaging 3,667 square feet), and one townhouse (three-bedroom, 3,473 square feet).
We started our tour at the top – the seventh floor, where just about the first thing we saw was part of the Manhattan Bridge and the upper portion of One World Trade Center.
Here is more of the view from the seventh floor. You can see the New York Times Building in the first shot and the top of the Empire State Building, One 57, the MetLife Building, the Chrysler Building, and 432 Park Avenue, plus a good chunk of the Citigroup Center and some of the Bloomberg Tower in the second one.
