Crews have starting digging in and pile-driving at the triangular lot (the former Mobil station) between Houston Street, Avenue C and Second Street...
...where the city OK'd plans for a 10-story, mixed-use building with 46 residential unit on Dec. 5. The rendering, first revealed back in the fall, is now on the plywood...
Rotwein + Blake are the architects of record. Here's more about the all-new 11 Avenue C via their website:
The narrow triangular site, presented numerous challenges from its odd shape to zoning constraints, Rotwein+Blake crafted a well thought-out solution to maximize potential development opportunity for the client. At ten stories, the building will have 4,600 SF of ground level retail, 46 residential apartments and a landscaped roof terrace.
The buildings retail component engages the more lively Houston Street side on a pedestrian level, with an abundance of storefront glass, awnings and stone details, while the residential entrance on 2nd Street, creates a more private and embracing gesture. The brick and zinc façade blend a modern twist to a historic warehouse style, reminiscent of the now, chic residential adaptive reuse projects of Soho and Tribeca.
The rendering states the project's completion date as March 2018.
