Better Living Properties, the new owners of 77 E. Third St., have filed the first work permits for the renovation of the former Hells Angels clubhouse here between First Avenue and Second Avenue.
The permit, dated yesterday, note "minor partition work in Apts 19-20-21-22." More permits will presumably follow.
As previously reported, No. 77 will be converted into 22 one- and two-bedroom units with an expected price point of $3,500 a month following a $2 million renovation. There was also a report that the ground floor will house two retail spaces.
The last of the members moved out of No. 77 at the end of March. The Hells Angels had this six-story building in their possession since 1969.
