Construction watch: 211 E. 13th St., aka The Jefferson

[October 2012, via EVG reader Katja]

Hey, let's pay a visit to the North West East Village, where work continues on the Jefferson, the new condo building at 211 E. 13th St. (AKA the former Mystery Lot).

EV Grieve Former Mystery Lot Correspondent/Current Jefferson Watcher Katja passes along photos of how the place is shaping up...


According to Streeteasy, 12 units are currently in contract here. There are 83 units in total at The Jefferson, named for the theater that once sat on the site.

I guess the Jefferson is a reference to the Vaudeville Jefferson Theater which use to be on 14th and 3rd.
Here's a shot of it from my blog, before it became the mystery lot ?

how do they plan to honor the part of that lots history when it was a spank theater? free lotion and tissues in the communal bathroom?

When do the dead bodies burst up through the floors? When do the hauntings begin? The suspense is killing me!

I like it... Well not as much as the mystery lot. But, it could have been so much worse and we all know it...
