A look inside the last East Village gas station
The Mobil station at Avenue C and East Houston closed last September. (Recent media reports said that the BP station on Second Avenue at East First Street was the last EV gas station. They shut down at the end of June 2014.)
As for the all-new 11 Avenue C… last we heard, Lloyd Goldman's BLDG Management had designs on a 10-story building with a retail component on the oddly shaped lot, according to the Commercial Observer.
Previous plans called for a 9-story building. Either way, nothing seems to be happening with that application, which the DOB rejected in April 2014 for incomplete drawings, per city records.
Meanwhile, back at the station… we never noticed this before… but someone punctured holes in the garage doors… offering a glimpse inside...
Also, as previously noted, the building adjacent to the station at 249 E. Second St., arrived on the market in the spring — air rights included — for $6.95 million.
