As I first reported back on Thursday, the former Hells Angels clubhouse sold for $7.75 million.
The Post followed-up yesterday with more details about new owner Nathan Blatter's plans for 77 E. Third St., a six-story building between First Avenue and Second Avenue.
The $2 million renovation will create two retail spaces on the ground floor where the clubhouse bar used to be — and one storefront could become a shrine to the burly bikers.
Blatter said he has been contacted by someone curating a Hells Angels museum, and another about a barber shop.
“The location is phenomenal,” Better Living’s Jonathan Sondry gushed. “It is a rare occasion to find a fully vacant building in Manhattan.”
The basement repair shop — equipped with a scissor lift that lowered motorcycles from the sidewalk — will be cleared out. The 16 “crash pads” once used by gang members — one was adorned with a swastika — will become 22 one- and two-bedroom units priced around $3,500 per month.
Sondry said he doesn’t plan to use the building’s history as a selling point, because he doubts oblivious 20-somethings will care.
To date, there haven't been any work permits filed with the DOB for the address.
The Hells Angels had a presence in 77 E. Third St. since 1969.
