2nd Avenue development makes 1st appearance above the plywood

Crews have been busy on the foundation of the 10-story residential building that will rise at 24 Second Ave. at First Street.

And this past week, the structure made its first appearance above the grade...

As previously noted, apartments will begin on the second floor, with four to five units per floor through the sixth story. The seventh and eighth floors will host two duplexes, and the ninth and tenth floors will hold one penthouse duplex with a private roof deck. Amenities include a shared terrace and recreation space on the second floor, and a fitness room, storage and bike storage in the cellar.

Permits show some 45,000 square feet for the 31 residences (rentals? condos?) … and another 5,700 square feet for the commercial space.

And the rendering...

The BP, which served a nice coffee, closed here in July 2014.

oh goody
another pre-fab, colorless, huge, boring, lego box.
did all the developers attend the same anti-architectural toy box school?

Just hideous.

By the way, blue glass, I had a very nice toy box, it was covered in colorful floral paper that was pleasing to look at, not something to be despised.

Still better than 90 percent of ugly sort of old buildings in east village. When I first saw this neighborhood in the 90s the fire escapes on the facades of buildings made me cringe.
