Workers have been renovating the storefront at 115 Avenue A near East Seventh Street.
According to a tipster (and confirmed with the contractor), the space will house the sales office for developer Ben Shaoul's condos going up nearby at 100 Avenue A.

Finally. Only a year ago, that block was dangerously close to being a serious blight.
Yeah, thank god for Tower Brokerage leasing the space.

"According to public records, the building at 115 Avenue A was sold in August 2012 for $3 million. The LLC that bought the building shares the address as the notorious 9300 Realty (owned by Croman Realty). A tipster told us that Alphabets could not negotiate a new lease."

Menace a trois!
