Plywood arrives ahead of demolition at 14th and C; 15-story retail-residential building on the way

Workers yesterday erected a plywood fence around 644 E. 14th St. at Avenue C, site of the former R&S Strauss auto parts store.

All the paperwork is in place to demolish the one-level structure … and build a 15-story mixed-use retail-residential complex here on the southwest corner.

Per our last post on this: The Karl Fischer-designed building 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 power plant.

All construction fencing as well as sidewalk sheds are required to be Kelly green. As per DOB.
