Work starts on the Shake Shack's Death Star location
Workers are prepping the corner of 51 Astor Place/IBM Watson Building/Death Star at Third Avenue and Ninth Street for Shake Shacking.
As previously noted, Danny Meyer’s fast-growing burger chain is opening a 3,000-square-foot outpost here.
Anyway, paper is up on the Third Avenue side of the building ... along with various permits...
Shake Shack has also applied for a beer-wine license. This application will go before CB3's SLA committee tonight...
And here's a look at the space from the Ninth Street side, which no one has papered over just yet...
The Post, who first reported on this new lease, said the Shack is expected to open in the fall.
