Full reveal at 100 Avenue A



On Monday afternoon, workers started removing the construction netting and scaffolding from 100 Avenue A ... eventually offering a full reveal of developer Ben Shaoul's condoplex between Sixth Street and Seventh Street...

And by late yesterday afternoon...



Per the marketing copy, "100 Avenue A is a vibrant new style of premium condominium living not yet seen on Tompkins Square Park."

As previously noted, residences (32 in all) at the 6-story 8-story building start at $1.3 million. (A construction worker told EVG correspondent Steven that new residents could likely start moving in as early as next month.) A Blink Fitness Center, with prices starting at $25 a month, will occupy the retail space.

Anyway, the 7-days-a-week work paid off... this is 100 Avenue A in July 2015...



... and a look back to 2009, when the one-time movie theater was East Village Farms...

I live down the block and think this looks great. Nice design and blends in nicely. I for one am happy to have this building on the block and hope it will even help to keep the block clean, maybe even help put in new trash cans that can get emptied once in awhile--gasp!

The sidewalk during construction (and still), the price per square foot, and a broker who doesn't spend any time here feigning he does and profiting to the bank all stink or stunk. But I agree it looks nice.. reminds me of something you'd see on Washington or Greenwich streets in west village.

Horrible. Can't wait for graffiti people to start tagging it up.

I wish they'd put in a bar or restaurant instead of a fitness center.

What's that black growth at the top?

Long live East Village Farm, a unique large 24 hour deli/green grocer that still has no match. A true loss among many.

As someone who lives on 7 and C, I pass this each day. I for one like it a lot. Yes, I miss Jimmy's a lot too, as does everyone who also lives in the hood. But, we can't live in the past and pine for what is no longer. It will be a nice addition for sure. The only thing is the price. For 1.3 million in another part of the country, one could have an enormous house. It makes all of us wonder if living here in NYC is worth it though.

Yikes, reminded of what an eyesore it once was. But I still miss it.

JUst checked out the Blink website. For this location prices are "as low as $25/ month." I don't know why we're getting charged more than some other locations.

The street level should be grocery or consumer retail, not a Blink gym. Sorry, it is not vibrant and does not add to neighborhood street life or community. Blink is a blank.
