[What's left of No. 253]
The city has signed off on permits for a new 6-story residential building at 253 E. Seventh St. between Avenue C and Avenue D.
As previously reported, workers demolished the former four-story residence here late last year. However, the new building plans never met with the city's approval. Then the developer, BSD Realty, filed new plans with Issac & Stern Architects designing the project.
In April, New York Yimby noted that the six residences here should average "a spacious 1,498 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums."
There is also a penthouse unit. (Bit of a duh.)
The property also has a new owner. Public records show that an LLC going by DRK East 7th Street paid $5.7 million for the plot in a filing posted on Aug. 22.
Thanks to the EVG reader for the tip on this!
