There are now plans for an 8-story residential building on this long-empty 10th Street lot

Plans for an 8-floor residential building were filed last Friday for the long-empty lot at 351 E. 10th St. between Avenue B and Avenue C.

This past October, an array of city and federal officials came together during a press conference "to celebrate the commencement of the preservation and rehabilitation of project-based Section 8 housing in the East Village." During this event, officials also noted that more affordable housing was set for this 10th Street parcel.

The pending permit lists that the building will have 28 residences with amenities that include a laundry room, bicycle storage and a 40-foot backyard space.

John Scobie of the NYC-based developer Center Development Corp. is listed as the property owner. It's not clear at the moment how many of these units will be designated as affordable.

Plans for housing here date to 2005 when permits were filed for a 6-floor building with 24 units. The work was never approved though, per public records.

In the past year, the city has announced fixed-income housing plans for 204 Avenue A and 535 E. 12th St. as well as 302 E. Second St.

Good! We desperately need more housing

Wait. Did I miss something. How did they get permission for 8 floors? Isn't six floors, as a rule, the limit?

Many of the new buildings in the area seem to be 7 -8 floors using setbacks
