Another corner still primed to fall in NoHo

The Meineke Car Care Center on the southwest corner of Lafayette and Great Jones is still for sale. Haven't been by this corner for some time...I recall talk of either a condo, and later, a hotel, for this space back in the summer of 2007...I thought it was a done deal.




According to the Massey Knakal Web site:

The property has Landmark’s Approval for a 6-story steel and glass building for residential, commercial or hotel-use. The development opportunity at 372 Lafayette Street has tremendous potential. The location alone sets the site apart as there is tremendous demand for this type of development project. This property represents a truly exceptional opportunity to capitalize on the strong demand for a premier residential, commercial, or mixed-use development site within the trendiest retail corridor in the NoHo neighborhood of Manhattan.


The property is listed at $4.4 million. It could look something like this:



Meanwhile, here's what it looks like now...enjoy it while you can...




Meanwhile, across the street, work continues on the Great Jones Hotel. Which the sign says will be completed in February 2010.

we don't really need parking lots, garages or auto repair shops after all. Can't remember the last time I saw a car in Manhattan....

Well, Acme is still standing. They used to have live bands playing there in the basement.
