Demolition starts on former garage and lot; new developments coming for Lafayette Street
Goggla passed along these photos yesterday, noting that the demolition had started on the former ZP Auto Repair Shop on the southwest corner of Lafayette and Great Jones. The shop moved out to Brooklyn in the spring of 2011. This prime real estate (car-care center? hahaha!) had been on the market for years. Workers started prepping the space for demolition back in the fall.
By the end of the afternoon, the garage was mostly gone...
The demolition extends to the parking lot and billboard on the northwest corner of Lafayette and Bond...
There are big plans in place for each corner.
At 10 Bond Street, developers have aspirations for a 7-story, 11-unit condo building. (Find more details and renderings at Curbed.)
One note: Earlier reports list Annabelle Selldorf as the architect of record for 10 Bond Street. However, the plans waiting approval at the DOB list the notorious Gene Kaufman as the architect.
Meanwhile, there are other big plans for the opposite corner at 372 Lafayette. The city just approved architect Morris Adjmi's plan for a new 6-story apartment building...
The last rendering we saw looked like...

Now where do people get their cars repaired?
