Corner watch: 32 Avenue C
The sidewalk bridge on the southeast corner of Avenue C and Third Street (aka 32 Avenue C) celebrated its six-year anniversary last month...
A full-vacate order has been in place since August 2012. To paraphrase the DOB, the building is leaning/sagging.
At one point, there were plans for this corner... with the filing of permits with the city in July 2005 for a new 6-floor residential building here. The city disapproved the plans in May 2006, and nothing more happened with the project.
Most recently, the owner — listed as Fairfax Management — filed a permit last fall with the DOB to "rebuild exterior walls; replace windows and sistering of floor joists to address" the various violations on file. The city disapproved this plan on March 14.
