New Empire Launches Sales at LES Condos

Sales have officially commenced at New Empire Corp.’s 208 Delancey, a 12-story, 85-unit new luxury condominium on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, reportedly the first Spring 2021 condo launch for the neighborhood. The Bauhaus-inspired building was designed by ODA New York.

“Our goal for 208 Delancey was to create an elevated extension of the Lower East Side, offering residents a calming oasis to come home to,” said Bentley Zhao, chairman and CEO of New Empire. “With an added emphasis on green spaces complemented by a robust amenity package and striking design, we are confident these new homes juxtapose the surrounding area quite nicely.”

Residences, starting at $630,000, range in size from 388-square-foot studios to 1,289-square-foot, three-bedroom penthouses with open floor plans with a smart keyless door entry, European oak plank flooring and oversized windows.
