Going Mobil

The former Mobil station is now all snug behind plywood on Avenue C and East Houston (luckily, workers left blogger portals in the plywood!).

Meanwhile, Mobil management put up a sign showing the nearest convenient locations for another Mobil station…

The station, the last one left in the East Village, abruptly closed on Sept. 2.

Back in March, Hakimian Property filed plans (still waiting for approval) to erect a 9-story mixed-use building on the site. Plans call for 45 residential units and 4,550 square feet of commercial space.

This aerial shot, via www.anitam.com, gives you a good idea of the shape of the lot and what the developers have to work with…

I know I saw a Mobil station around 12th and 8th the last time I was there—it was demolished and rebuilt within the past year—so the two they mention must be part of the same chain.
