We've been waiting for workers to go through the roof of the circa-1847 building at 315 E. 10th St. As you'll recall, the city OK'd a one-floor rooftop addition here in January hours before the Landmarks Preservation Committee approved the East 10th Street Historic District.
Meanwhile, this makeshift fence just appeared the other day on the roof ... and there is plenty of activity at the building...
However, from this view via Jose Garcia ... you can see the new addition is well underway...
Jose also notes the arrival in mid-January of a note on letterhead from a company called "315 East 10th Street Owner, LLC." The letter was an announcement on the pending construction at 315. The letter was signed "Keith Holden Project Manager," but when nearby residents called the number, no one there had ever heard of a Keith Holden. The people in charge onsite at 315 were also unfamiliar with a Keith Holden.
Holden's name is also on the DOB permits for 315 E. 10th St.
Developer Benjamin Shaoul's Magnum Real Estate Group owns the property.
