Asbestos abatement underway at the former Salvation Army's East Village Residence

Just a quick follow-up to our post from last Wednesday about the pending demolition of the Salvation Army's former East Village Residence on the Bowery at East Third Street.

For starters, the asbestos abatement has apparently commenced here ahead of ripping down the building to make way for a 13-story mixed-use residential development.

As for that development, BoweryBoogie points out an intriguing (and pretty fucked-up) possibility … designer Giauco Lolli-Ghetti of Urban Muse bought the space for $19 million … As BoweryBoogie noted, Lolli-Ghetti has a 2009 patent on a "vertical integrated parking system" that connects each condo with a private parking space on the same floor.

Same-floor parking? Puts that bike storage room in the basement to shame.

Meanwhile, until No. 347 comes down, the party continues on the corner…
