14th and C now waiting for the Karl Fischer-designed 15-story retail-residential complex
Crews have demolished the one-level structure at 644 E. 14th St. at Avenue C.
Coming soon, as previously reported: a 15-story mixed-use retail-residential complex here on the southwest corner.
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.
Per the signs not he plywood, the work will be completed by summer 2015. Hurry! Unless they mean the demo...
The previous tenant here was the R&S Strauss auto parts store, which closed in April 2009.
