Is 26 Avenue B ready for its new building now?
It appears that work is ready to resume at 26 Avenue B between East Second Street and East Third Street, where there have been approved plans for a new 8-unit, 6-floor residential building.
Work stopped here in April 2013, after excavation at the site caused the evacuation of the residents (and Croxley Ales) next-door at No. 28. A resident at No. 28 started to notice cracks in her ceiling after construction began, DNAinfo reported. Debris also reportedly fell from the building.
In subsequent months/years, workers made structural repairs to No. 28.
The empty lot now has freshly painted plywood … and a rendering, basically showing the apartment building above the Duane Reade next door…
The lot itself remains empty…
… though it does seems like a good spot for some sun…
This space was once home to the Croxley Ales beer garden.
