There are new plans for the long-empty corner space on Fourth Avenue and East 10th Street.
As New York Yimby first reported:
New building applications were filed over the weekend for a 10-story, eight-unit building on the site. The first floor would hold 2,600 square feet of retail, followed by nine stories of apartments. Those eight units would spread across 22,934 square feet, for an incredibly spacious average unit of 2,866 square feet. These will clearly be condos, and expensive ones at that. The Schedule A doesn’t specify, but we expect one apartment per floor with a penthouse duplex on top.
And this is one of the renderings that have been attached to the corner…
The lot hit the market in June 2013 for $24 million.
There were once plans to build a 13-story hotel here, though the city never OK'd that proposal, as Curbed reported in 2009.
The previous tenants, including the Green East deli and St. Marx Music (and previously the Atlas Barber School), were cleared out in early 2007.
NYY also noted that the development will include a four-story, turn-of-the-century townhouse next door at 82 E. 10th St. Not sure if that means renovate and add on to the existing building … or demolish and build on the property… (Turn to Vanishing New York for more on this history of 82 E. 10th St.)
