On the way: A five-story apartment building for Fifth Street

Last November, I noted the destruction of 532 E. Fifth St. between Avenue A and Avenue B. The four-story home was quickly knocked down.

And today, work continues on the land's new tenant: A 10-unit, five-story apartment building. Staten Island-based Door to Door Realty's name is attached to this project. According to their Web site: "[W]e create an environment that is affordable, welcoming and chic."

And two notes from locals on the plywood:

More gardens! We'll need them more and more as we will probably all be growing our own food. I predict this will be the next trend - developers switching from buildings to urban dude ranches.
