Moise Safra Community Center

The new Moise Safra Community Center is set to be 14 stories and 65,000 square feet, located on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.

In the sub-cellar there will be a pool, lounge and men’s locker room. The cellar will house the women’s locker room, a family changing room, group fitness, a wellness center, a treatment room and office space.

The first floor will have lobbies for both the community center and synagogue, along with a café, bar and pantry. The second floor will have offices and the main level of the larger synagogue. The upper level of that sanctuary will be on the third floor, which will also have another lounge. The smaller worship space, the library, more office space and a warming pantry will be on the fourth floor.

A multipurpose room, café, offices and another lounge will be on the fifth floor, and above that another multipurpose room, café and offices on the sixth floor.  The seventh floor will have classrooms for art and cooking, a dance and yoga studio, offices and a lounge. There will be a gym on the eighth floor.

The ninth floor will have a dining lounge and roof terrace, followed by a dining room and kitchen on the 10th floor.  The 11th floor will have a lounge, followed by offices and an outdoor play area on the 12thfloor.

The building will be cladded in a sheer curtain-wall on its northern and southern exposures, while a masonry core provides ballast in the center and rises slightly higher than the rest of the structure.  The setback will house a two-level banquette hall.

Completion of the project is anticipated for mid-to-late 2018.
