Ben Shaoul's proposed new Avenue A building will be 8 stories with a roof deck
The former 98-100 Avenue A, most recently East Village Farms, is a mere shell of its former self as developer Ben Shaoul continues plans to build a retail-residential space here between East Seventh Street and East Sixth Street.
And we have a few more specifics now about what's next here.
Permits filed with the DOB last Thursday show plans for a proposed building that is 37,042 square feet — 29,881 for residential and 7,161 for a ground-floor retail space ... good for 8 stories and 43 residential units, plus bicycle storage in the basement and an "outdoor tenant recreation space" on the roof. Ramy Issac is listed as the architect of record.
The rendering on the plywood shows a 7-story structure.
There's also a retail listing (PDF) for the space, which doesn't exactly account for what the new building will look like…
