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.
