1st activity at 500 E. 14th St. since the demolition phase, and when the standing water froze
There's finally some activity to note at the southeast corner of 14th Street and Avenue A, home one day to a 7-floor retail-residential building from Extell Development.
Last week, workers erected some fencing and plywood …
Workers have put a temporary sidewalk in place on East 14th Street for pedestrian use once the construction begins...
Perhaps this is a sign that approved permits are on the way? The city has yet to OK the new building (the DOB disapproved the last round of plans back in November, according to city records). Meanwhile, the only thing happening here in previous months is the standing water on the lot freezing and thawing.
As a reminder of what the new development will look like… here's the conceptual rendering… 500 E. 14th St. will have 106 residential units.
And further to the east, 524 E. 14th St. will house 44 residential units…
The demolition of the one-level row of buildings along East 14th Street between Avenue A and Avenue B wrapped up last August.
