Workers have been doing some major excavating of late in the empty corner storefront on Second Avenue and Fifth Street... One of the workers told EVG Interior Demolition Contributor Derek Berg, who took the shots below, that there were multiple layers of floor and ceiling here... (some cheap-o and quick-o renovations from the past...)
The work permits don't shed much, if any, light on the next tenant. The permits say, in the ALL-CAP DOBese:
INTERIOR ALTERATIONS INCLUDING REMOVAL OF NON-LOAD BEARING PARTITIONS AND FINISHES, REPLACE CELLAR SLAB ON GRADE, REPLACE 1ST FLOOR WOOD JOISTS WITH METAL JOISTS, METAL DECK AND CONCRETE SLAB; PLUMBING ALTERATIONS INCLUDING REMOVAL AND REPLACEMENT OF FIXTURES.
The space was last 100% Healthy Blend (or maybe just Healthy Blend), which closed last November after three months ... and previously it was the underage-drinking hotspot Dahlia's and Mary Ann's.
