East Village now down a dorm
Renovations continue at 101 E. 10th St., the former SVA dorm at the corner of Third Avenue.
The 5-story building that houses a TD bank hit the market back in the spring. However, it appears that real-estate investment firm Atkins & Breskin still retains the property.
Regardless, the job site has a partial approval from the DOB, which notes a "gut rehabilitation of existing apartment building and change in the number of dwelling units. Obtain amended [Certificate of Occupancy]." So we're looking at a conversion to residential.
The Real Deal originally reported in March that "an additional 7,802 square feet of as-of-right air rights" existed for the building. There's nothing yet on file with the DOB to note any extra floors.
SVA students reportedly left the dorm after the spring term. A school official told The Villager that the school would use a new residence on East 24th Street at First Avenue.
