Work continues at 202 Avenue A, the four-story building on the east side between 12th Street and 13th Street.
The custom stereo shop Bright Audio had been in this storefront for five years, before relocating across the Avenue last December.
I heard that the space was being renovated. Well, that's an understatement, as this interior photo via Steven shows... oh!
As you can see, there's a lot more going on than a simple storefront conversion.
According to the approved work permits on file with the city, there's a horizontal and vertical enlargement of the existing structure. The current total square footage is 5,334; the additions will bring the total to 10,920. The work permits show that the new retail space will be roughly 2,000 square feet.
There will be 10 residences here, including a duplex penthouse with a private terrace, per the work permits.
Here's a look at the rendering of the all-new 202 — called the Topanga — via Lenart Architecture ...
Highpoint Property Group bought No. 202 in a deal that closed last December for $6.75 million, according to public records.
