Of the three rumors previously presented, turns out that we'll be looking at the doomsday scenario for most of the block:
All the space starting at the ABC Animal Hospital west to Avenue A will be developed into some type of housing-retail complex.
According to public records, in late November, eight parcels consisting of 222 Avenue A and 504 - 530 E. 14th St. were leased for a 99-year period by the respective owner to East Village 14 LLC.
(East Village 14 LLC is a Delaware Company that registered with the New York State Department of State in October 2012.)
Public records put the cost of this parcel at $35 million.
CORRECTION: Amended an earlier version of this aerial view. The deal does not include 520 E. 14th St., the 6-story apartment building that includes a Dunkin Donuts and the Royal Custom Tailors in the retail space.
And here are the parcels of land included in the deal:
So we're looking at everything from where Stuyvesant Grocery and Pete's-a-Pizza were before the fire on May 12, 2010 at Avenue A east to, and including, the Animal Hospital. The lone exception: 520 E. 14th St. Presumably new development will happen on either side of this building.
And because people have asked before: The Blarney Cove is included in this land grab.
