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...

The redevelopment down here is crazy. And what is this trend of taking over the sidewalk and part of the street?
This city administration sucks.
Agree with Anon 5:42am - there has to be a better way than to block a complete sidewalk & bikelane for months if not longer. Seriously, Portapotty had to go in the bikelane? Absolutely no place to put it on the site itself, at least for a while? This is a plague in NYC and since most of us get around on foot, and many by bike, it's an inconvenience and sometimes a danger. Can you imagine navigating this as a person with a disability in a wheelchair, or an elderly person with a walker? To add insult to the injury, most of these project don't benefit the community in any way but only developers & the wealthy who can afford to live / 'invest' in apartments there.
I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.
"Our newest East Village condominium develop on the corner of 5th Street." So I guess that's the Rite Aid then? Right, no. Just be accurate Mr. Serhant.
@8:08 AM I just threw up in your mouth a little bit too. There, is that gross enough for you? People, please stop using this ridiculous phrase to comment on everything you don't like, it makes me want to throw up.
that picture of men in suits are who/what?
could be a picture of a fraternity initiation.
the real story is that this development is part of the fastforward demolition of our neighborhood. soon there will be only huge glass buildings from south ferry to 59th street.
glass because it will be easier to tear down than brick and mortar.
The lot has been vacant for at least ten years, not exactly fast forward demolition of the neighborhood. Did we really think it would be developed into a community center?
Still trying to sort this out; ...contemporary and timeless glassy structure." How can something be contemporary and timeless simultaneously? And "glassy structure" isn't the best verbeage, reads like shiny turd to me.
It's a vacant lot. What do you think was going to be done with it? There is complaining and then there is what's done too often... a knee-jerk reaction...attack the usual suspects.
Seems to me that they need at least four more shovels to get this project done on time!
I too am sick of seeing these gigantic orange dividing blocks monopolizing the street The other day while riding in the rain, I got hit on the side by an impatient psychotic tourist bus driver as I was passing a development with these things in the street.
In this era of Vision Tunnel/Zero, these obstructions should be removed after the work day is done.
The call-a-head placement is a new one. A perfect symbol of the free reign these predatory developers have over the citizenry and our corrupt mayor and overpaid city council. Those guys in that instagram look like dicks too.
Those guys all need Flu Shots from Rite-Aid. STAT.
Looks like they're all in on the joke, or something.
