Gutting the former Hells Angels clubhouse on 3rd Street
The renovations at 77 E. Third St. have entered the serious gutting phase here between First Avenue and Second Avenue...
Approved work permits note "minor partition work" in the various apartments. (From the street level, the work appears to be more than minor.)
As previously reported, No. 77 — the former Hells Angels clubhouse, now owned by Better Living Properties — 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 2019. The Hells Angels had this six-story building in their possession since 1969.
The Hells Angels reportedly ended up in Throggs Neck, a neighborhood in the southeastern portion of the Bronx. Last week, two members and an accomplice were charged in the fatal shooting of a rival gang leader.
