2 years after closing, last East Village gas station finally looking ready for demolition
A demolition crew has been at the former Mobil station on Avenue C and East Houston...
...putting it yet another fence.
DOB permits show that the actual demolition will begin today. Meanwhile, the city has yet to approve the necessary permits for the 9-story retail-residential building here. (It had been 10 stories at one point.)
As a reminder, here are some renderings via the architect of record, Rotwein + Blake, showing what's to come...
There will be 46 residential units here and 4,600 square feet of ground-level retail.
The Mobil station closed on Sept. 2, 2014. It was the last one in business in the East Village.
