Crews have started digging into the pit at 75 First Ave. between Fourth Street and Fifth Street...
Doing the preliminary work for the foundation of an 8-story condoplex — featuring 22 residences in total.
And please mind the cattle pen and porta-potty set up on the bike lane...
As previously noted, here's what the Colonnade Group has planned for the lot:
Designed by HTO-Architect, the building will rise 8 stories and will stand out with its contemporary and timeless glassy structure. Comprised of 22 residential units, ranging from 1 to 3 bedroom condominiums, 75 I˚ AVE is the ultimate destination for New York sophisticated buyers looking for all the comforts of a high-end residence in a young and dynamic environment.
All of the units will benefit from a number of amenities, including Fitness Center, Lounge and Library, Private and Common Roof Deck, Storage, Bike Storage & Doorman
and a no-wait express line next door at Rite Aid.
Still haven't seen the full rendering — just this thumbnail of an image...
And Ryan Serhant's team is responsible for the condo sales... here's a photo of some suits and shovels during the official groundbreaking at No. 75 a few weeks ago...
