East 11th Street between Avenue A and Avenue B continues to be an active zone for ongoing construction. Idling trucks. Large cranes. Blocked traffic. Continuous jackhammering.
Here's a look at the projects making life nearly unbearable for some neighbors.
• The Mary Spink apartments, which will provide affordable housing for formerly homeless and mentally disabled East Villager residents
• 510 E. 11th St., where workers are adding a new floor to the existing four-story building...
• 500 E. 11th St, home of the incoming 7-Eleven. After 11 months of gut renovation, the space is finally looking 7-Eleveny/chainy...
In April, some residents who live above here said that the never-ending work has made their existence in the building "a living hell."
• 181 Avenue A at East 11th Street, where workers are about halfway done demolishing the Mary Help of Christians school and church...
After the demo, residents from more than just East 11th Street will have to endure the lengthy (and noisy) construction of developer Douglas Steiner's retail-residental complex.... described in one listing as a "140 unit market luxury rental building."
One East 11th Street resident said that one of these jobs would be off-putting enough, but four happening simultaneously is "fucking ridiculous."
