Reps filed the demolition permits to take down the former Peter Stuyvesant Post Office at 438 E. 14th St. last October...
And now workers are finally erecting the sidewalk bridge and requisite netting on the former PO's East 13th Street side...
As previously noted, an 8-story retail-residential building will eventually rise here. The residential entrance will be on the East 13th Street side.
The 114-unit residential portion will include exercise and rec rooms, a quiet lounge and private dining room.
SLCE Architects are listed as the designer of record. That firm's résumé includes such high-profile projects as 432 Park Ave. (with its $95 million penthouse) and the Blue building on the Lower East Side.
The PO closed in February 2014, though the wounds of waiting for a package that just isn't there remain fresh.
