Construction gear coming down from new residences on Seventh and A
On Wednesday, workers started removing the scaffolding and construction netting from 130 E. Seventh St. at Avenue A...
Since fall 2011, the building that houses 7A on the corner has been undergoing renovations... including converting some existing commercial space to residential use and reconstructing a portion of the existing penthouse, per the DOB. Public records show that the University of the Streets sold the building to Park Corner Development, LLC in September 2011 for $5 million.
No word if this units will be rentals or condos or something else...
Anyway, look for the rest of the sidewalk bridge to come down soon enough ... and maybe the 7A sidewalk cafe will see the sun again.
