Here then is EVGB on 14th Street
Extell's two new 7-story buildings on 14th Street between Avenue A and Avenue B have a name — EVGB.
That's short for "East Village's Greatest Building."
The EVGB branding, with a random "go big" tossed in, arrived on the two retail-residential developments — 500 E. 14th St. and 524 E. 14th St. — back on Monday, as these photos via an EVG (not EVGB!) reader show.
To date, only the corner space at No. 500 at Avenue A has been taken — that will be the small-format Target store.
Newmark Knight Frank has the retail listings... there's one 14,509 square-foot space adjacent to the incoming Target for rent. (Negotiable rate!) At No. 524 a few doors to the east, there are two retail spaces encompassing 14,331 square feet.

EVGB's residential amenities include a fitness center, children’s play room, an indoor pool and steam room. The rentals have yet to hit the market. Soon though! The application process is underway for 50 middle-income units at No. 524.
Extell's EVGBs replaced a nearly block-long row of single-level structures that didn't have an acronym, businesses including Bargain Bazaar/Express, Petland, Rite Aid and the Blarney Cove.
