EAST VILLAGE — A neighborhood synagogue is being gutted to make room for luxury condominiums going for $2.95 million to $4.395 million, according to the developer.

The five-story project, located at the former Adas Yisroel Anshe Meseritz synagogue at 415 E. 6th St., will build three residential units while leaving room on the ground floor for the still-active congregation, as first reported by the New York Times.

Located within the East Village Historic District, the building will retain its neoclassical limestone façade from the early 20th century while units on the second and third floors will contain the synagogue’s original stained-glass windows, according to an announcement by the developer, East River Partners.

The building will contain one 1,900-square-foot apartment on the second and third floors, each with two bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms and an office, the developer said.

The third residence will be a three-bedroom, two-and-half-bathroom duplex penthouse with a north and south terrace. Altogether, the unit spans more than 2,500 square feet, according to East River Partners.

“From incorporating the original stained glass windows to installing high-end appliances, we wanted to integrate the authentic feel of the neighborhood with modern living,” said Jody Kriss, principal and co-founder of East River Partners, in a statement.

“We feel we’ve merged them seamlessly.”

Millie Perry and Cornelia H. Van Amburg of Stribling Marketing Associates are the exclusive sales and marketing agents on the project, according to the developer’s announcement.

The condos are expected to be completed in February 2016.
