With new building OK'd, corner of 4th Avenue and 10th Street finally ready for razing
Workers prepped the southeast corner of 10th Street and Fourth Avenue late last week for demolition. (H/T to a reader for alerting us to this on Friday.) This comes about nine months after the permits were filed.
The parcel includes the four-story, turn-of-the-century townhouse at 82 E. 10th St.
Last Monday, the city OK'd the plans for a 10-story building here. The approved permit shows retail on the ground floor and 12 dwelling units above. The residential portion encompasses more than 24,000 square feet, so those units will presumably be condos. Floors 2-5 will each have two units while 6-8 will each have one unit while a two-level duplex to top things off.
The plans also show a rooftop "recreation space" ... with more outdoor space on the ground level. Residential perks include a media room, an exercise room and storage for seven bikes, according to the permits.
SBLM Architects are listed as the architects of record. We didn't spot a rendering at their website ... but there is this diagram on file with the DOB...
It has been a long time coming for this — or any — development here. The previous tenants, including the Green East deli and St. Marx Music (and previously the Atlas Barber School), were cleared out in early 2007. There were once plans to build a 13-story hotel, though the city never OK'd that proposal, Curbed reported in 2009.
The plans for the 10-story building were filed last summer, as New York Yimby first reported. The layout has been amended somewhat. The plans from last summer showed just eight residences. Folks living here will just have to make due with a little less space.
82 E. 10th St. was thought to have housed the Hilda Carmel Gallery in the late 1950s and early 1960s, where the likes of Pollock, Rothko and de Kooning showed their work.
