Construction watch: 185-193 Avenue B
Time to check in again on 185-193 Avenue B, where a 7-story mixed-used residential building with 41 "dwelling units" is in the works for the corner here at East 12th Street. The building will include the new home of the Elim Pentecostal Church.
Workers have been pouring the foundation of late …
As we've pointed out in previous posts on this seemingly never-ending project, it hasn't always been easy. Nearby residents endured months of relentless pile driving and other building-rattling noise. There were complaints about cracks next door at No. 183.
Meanwhile, we finally got a glimpse of the boxy rendering. It remains in the construction office next door. (The renderings can usually be found on the plywood along the actual construction site.)
The rendering notes a completion date of October 2014.
