As you may know, there are city-approved plans on file for a 10-story retail-residential complex at 24 Second Ave. and East First Street. (Former home of a gas station and pretty good coffee, truth be told.)
Last October, we spotted a rendering for the new project... though not at the website of the architect of record (RSVP Studio) but rather the website for mortgage lender Ladder Capital.
Now renderings grace the plywood surrounding the construction zone...
Turns out it is the same rendering we saw last fall... Hello!
As New York Yimby first noted last July when the developers filed the permits, apartments will begin on the second floor, with four to five units per floor through the sixth story. The seventh and eighth floors will host two duplexes, and the ninth and tenth floors will hold one penthouse duplex with a private roof deck. Amenities include a shared terrace and recreation space on the second floor, and a fitness room, storage and bike storage in the cellar.
Permits show some 45,000 square feet for the 31 residences (rentals? condos?) … and another 5,700 square feet for the commercial space.
Plywood aside, there hasn't been any new construction here to date, as a look through the handy blogger portal shows...
The BP — which was the second-to-last gas station left in the East Village — closed here in July 2014.
