Sidewalk bridge arrives at 118 E. 1st St., where a 9-story building is in the works

An EVG tipster shared this photo from yesterday ... when workers erected the sidewalk bridge and started putting up the necessary equipment to demolish the existing three-level structure at 118 E. First St. between Avenue A and First Avenue.

As previously noted, the existing structure is being demolished to make room for a 9-story residential building. In total, there are seven units divided over 12,500 square feet of residential space, as NY Yimby first reported. (Given the size — about 1,800 square feet, NYY figures these will be condos.)

The building will include a small retail space on the ground floor.

Speaking of signs, though — this one appeared in a window here back in November...
