At last look in November, the former four-story residence at 253 E. Seventh St. between Avenue C and Avenue D had been reduced to a pile of bricks.
An LLC with a Grand Street address bought the building in August 2014 for $4.3 million. The new owners had plans to put up a 6-story building with six residences on the property. However, the city has yet to approve those plans.
Now this empty property is for sale. It arrived on Streeteasy yesterday. Per the listing at the E Property Group:
Subject property is currently vacant land, & ready to go development site. Perfect for a:
• Boutique condo building
• Rental building,
• Your dream custom mansion townhouse
Located on one of the east village’s most beautiful & serene tree-lined historic blocks. Preserved gardens to the west & north create a grand opportunity for lot-line & rear country like views. 1.5 blocks from Tomkins sq. park & just a few doors down from the magnificent flowerbox condos.
Pre-approved plans available for a high-end 6-unit condo building, EPA, & boring sample
The asking price is $6.25 million.
And here's a rendering of sorts that accompanies the listing...
Again, despite what the listing says, these plans haven't been approved by the city...
