Last Wednesday, demolition crews arrived at 185-193 Avenue B to start work on the former theater-church... (photos from last week are here and here...)
The building is now all snug in a sidewalk shed, slowly coming down piece by piece...
There are still plans waiting approval at the DOB for a mixed-use seven-story building ...
Meanwhile, the sign on the sidewalk bridge offers up details above the space's future:
"[A] new seven-story mixed use building is being built that will include a 12,915 square foot community facility condominium in a portion of the cellar and ground floor, to be used by Iglesia De Dios Pentecostal Elim, Inc., as well as a 35,426 square foot residential apartment condominium, consisting of 40 studio and one-bedroom apartments in a portion of the cellar, ground floor and the entirety of floors 2-7."
