… and a little later …
This has been in the making now for the past 18 months or so. There are plans on file for a new 12-story building. Here's a look at a rendering…
The DOB hasn't approved the plans for the new building just yet. The 12-story, 13-unit project (which includes a set-back penthouse) will have 3,970-square-feet of commercial space on the ground floor. Read more about the project at Curbed here.
According to Off the Grid, the space at 688 Broadway has been a parking lot since 1960 when two loft buildings were demolished.
