1st sign of 2 new floors to come on 3rd Avenue and 10th Street
The conversion from SVA dorm to upscale rentals continues at the northeast corner of Third Avenue and 10th Street.
The beams have arrived for the two new floors in the works.
Cutting and pasting from The Real Deal last November ... "Slate – a Midtown-based development firm – and RWN Real Estate Partners want to reposition the building as a high-end rental property. The group was apparently able to obtain the 8,000 square feet in unused air rights to add the new floors above the existing structure."
The building will house 41 units with an "outdoor tenant recreation area" on the second floor, per DOB documents.
SVA students moved out after the spring 2014 term .. with the students now using a newish residence on East 24th Street at First Avenue.
