Preliminary demolition work at 99-101 E. 2nd St. is — surprise — in the asbestos-removal phase
The two-level 99-101 E. Second St. at First Avenue will be demolished in the weeks/months ahead... but not before workers remove the asbestos from the space.
That operation is apparently underway...
One EVG reader thought this set-up looked a little casual given the potential severity of the work... The reader also noted the lack of notice, which has prompted concerns among a few neighbors who learned of this activity via a sign on the dumpster...
As previously reported, developer Sergey Rybak has submitted plans for a 7-story, 22-unit residential building on the property of the current 24 First Ave. and 99-101 E. Second St.
And as a reminder, here's a rendering for the space via the Rybak website...
According to the site, the residences will be condos (building name for now — 101E2). The ground-floor space is designated for retail use.
