Drilling and double plywood at 500 E. 14th St.
A resident who lives adjacent to 500 E. 14th St. shared photos of the workers who arrived at the site yesterday… marking the first major activity on the lot since the demolition of the one-level row of buildings along East 14th Street between Avenue A and Avenue B last summer.
There is an approved permit for the always-sexy Pile Load Test here. Eventually the site will yield a 7-floor retail-residential building via Extell Development.
Meanwhile, the sidewalk is now closed … with the double plywood in effect …and the temporary sidewalk…
… and double blogger portals…
Also, we haven't heard any updates about a possible new L train entrance for Avenue A.
