See The Rhythm Rising
140-unit project will fill the Downtown's doughnut hole.
The north end of Downtown is changing. N. Water St., which connects East Town to the Lower East Side, is seeing a wave of construction that is turning empty lots into a string of apartment buildings. Much attention has been paid to the projects on the west side of the street, but activity is picking up on the east side of the street. The Rhythm is the furthest along of the east side projects. When complete the apartment building will add 140 apartments to the stretch that was once called the “hole in the doughnut Downtown.”
The project is being developed by a partnership of Tim Gokhman and Jim Wiechmann. The project will include a mix of studio and one-bedroom units. Rents at The Rhythm will range from $1,200 to $1,600 per month.
Framing of the actual apartments has begun at The Rhythm. The work is taking place atop the two-story parking garage. General contracting on the project is being led by Catalyst Construction, which has also built the Avante, Latitude, Brewery Point and East Terrace apartment buildings within a couple blocks.
The $10 million project is being designed by Kindness Architecture, who has worked with the development team on a number of other projects. When complete the project will include five levels of apartments above a two-level parking structure.
Just across the street the Mandel Group‘s Aperture apartments are rapidly nearing completion. The project, which is the third phase of The North End, includes 168 apartments and a Fresh Thyme Farmers Market grocery store. See inside that project in our February coverage.
