"It is incredibly exciting to be building a best-in-class residential property that will also help the Shaare Zedek congregation stay in the neighborhood where they have had roots for nearly 100 years."
Landsea Homes and Leyton Properties are building a modern 14-story condominium designed by Eran Chen of ODA New York. Drawing inspiration from the neighborhood's historic pre-war architecture and with interiors by Grade, that celebrate refined, inviting and modern appointments throughout.
"As the third oldest Jewish congregation in the city, we are very excited to be in partnership with Landsea Homes and Leyton Properties," said Michael Firestone, President of Congregation Shaare Zedek.
