East End Capital, Greenfield Partners and K Property Group hold groundbreaking for new 141 East Houston office project

141 East Houston will be a new, high design, best-in-class 65,000 SF office building with three levels of retail at the base


NEW YORK, NY – (October 2nd, 2019) – On October 2nd, the partnership developing 141 East Houston Street (www.141easthouston.com) held the project’s official groundbreaking.  Situated on the Lower East Side, between 1st and 2nd Avenues, on the site of the former Sunshine Theater which is now fully demolished, site excavation commenced and construction is now well underway.

East End Capital, developers of the project, were joined by its partners Greenfield Partners and K Property Group.  Also in attendance were executives from the building’s architect, Roger Ferris + Partners, and the general contractor, CM & Associates.

When completed in early 2021, 141 East Houston will be a new, best-in-class 65,000 SF office building, including three levels of retail at the base.  Tenants can expect a spectacularly designed building from Roger Ferris, showcasing massive windows with expansive views, 14-foot ceilings, column-free efficient space, an exclusive tenant lounge, and both private and communal outdoor terraces.

141 E Houston - Groundbreaking

“The Lower East Side has more creatives living in it than just about any neighborhood in New York, yet it currently has no class A office space.  We are thrilled to be a part of the neighborhood’s changing landscape and provide something that is really needed,” said Jonathon Yormak, Co-Founder of East End.

“The building is beautiful and incredibly efficient for tenants,” added David Peretz, East End’s other Co-Founder, “and, we suspect, employers will find it very easy to recruit the best talent to this location.”

Office leasing is being handled by Howard Hersch of JLL, and retail leasing is being handled by Richard Skulnik of RIPCO.
