137 Avenue C — still standing!
We continue to be intrigued by the building-wide gut renovation underway at 137 Avenue C near East Ninth Street.
Workers are adding an extra floor to the existing structure… what's left of it. It appears from the street anyway that only the north-facing wall remains…
... and a view to the south...
EVG regular Dave on 7th is equally as intrigued, and he notes that workers dug out and built a whole new foundation. "It will be all new but two walls and some joists. Maybe!"
Here's what to expect here one of these days...
Meanwhile, there is a potential new tenant for this storefront. An attorney for the applicant — an unnamed person seeking a full liquor license for a restaurant — had filed paperwork with CB3 for the October and December SLA committee meetings. In both cases, though, the applicant subsequently withdrew from the agenda.
The ground-floor space was previously home to the Sunburnt Cow, which closed on April 27 after 11 years.
