Owner plans to convert 12-story manufacturing building to offices with retail space in Midtown South

George Miranda, as a manager of Crystal Properties LLC, on June 26, filed plans for a $218,000 project to convert a 60,827-square-foot manufacturing building to an office building at 35 West 35th Street in Midtown South.

The plans call for a change in use of the 150-foot tall, 12-story, building. The managing member of Crystal Properties is Richard Feldman.

The project is described in the filings as: filing to change use, occupancy and egress of existing commercial 12-story building. Interior alterations to provide new egress corridors and create new opening into existing fire stair on all floors.

The project will add a kitchen to the cellar of the building, according to the plans. The ground floor will be converted from a manufacturing loft to an eating and drinking establishment, while a mezzanine will be added to be used as an office space for the ground-floor retail. The second floor will go from an adult school to offices, toilets, reception, staff lounge, and a conference room. Floors three through 12 will be converted from manufacturing lofts to additional offices, toilets, reception rooms, staff lounges, and conference rooms.

DBB Architecture PC is the architect on the application.

These are the first plans filed for the building since April of 2019, when plans for a minor project to install smoke, heat, and carbon monoxide detection systems, as well as sprinkler and fire alarm systems, to the building.

Crystal Properties LLC has owned the property since 1999.
