Demolition permits are now on file to take down the long-empty, single-level building at 71 Fourth Ave. and the four-story, turn-of-the-century townhouse next door at 82 E. 10th St., DNAinfo reports.

Stewart Osborne, a partner in the LLC that bought the properties for development, told DNAinfo's Lisha Arino that they are still in the "planning process," and haven't decided on what to build here.
As New York Yimby first reported back in July, the owners filed plans for a 10-story, eight-unit building on the site with ground-floor retail. The DOB disapproved the first round of plans in September.
And, as previously noted, this is one of the renderings that has been attached to the corner…
The lot hit the market in June 2013 for $24 million.
The previous tenants of No. 71, including the Green East deli and St. Marx Music (and previously the Atlas Barber School), were cleared out in early 2007.
