Prepping the former R&S Strauss auto parts store for demolition on East 14th Street and Avenue C
More than five years after closing, it looks as if the R&S Strauss auto parts store is finally being prepped for demolition on the southeast corner of East 14th Street and Avenue C.
On Friday, a reader said that the DEP was there to disconnect some of the utilities. However, despite this action, as well as baiting for rodents, there aren't any demo permits on file with the city just yet.
As for what's next, there are plans waiting for approval to build a 15-story, mixed-use retail-residential complex.
New York Yimby had some details in late April about this Karl Fischer-designed building, which will total 61,789 square feet. DOB permits show 8,578 square feet of commercial space on the ground floor. The remainder of the first five stories will host a community facility, which will span 18,937 square feet, and 50 apartments will sit above — some even with views of the Con Ed plant.
