Last we heard, developers had plans for a 9-story mixed-use building at the site of the former Mobil station on East Houston and Avenue C. Plans called for 45 residential units and 4,550 square feet of commercial space at the all-new 11 Avenue C.
However, the Commercial Observer got the scoop on the latest rendering, which features floor-to-ceiling corner windows and a few balconies.
Paperwork that the Commercial Observer obtained shows that Lloyd Goldman's BLDG Management are applying to build a 10-floor building.
And what else?
BLDG must petition the city for the variance in order to install the retail component and build out the oddly-shaped lot to full capacity, according to its application. BLDG officials hope to use an inclusionary housing bonus by paying for affordable units elsewhere rather than including them in the new project, the application says.
Uh, so where is "elsewhere" for these affordable units?
The 14-month-long construction project is expected to start in January if the one- and two-bedroom rental project gains approval from Board of Standards and Appeals.
