The new-look 151 Avenue A
Workers removed the scaffolding and sidewalk bridge from outside 151 Avenue A last week, revealing a new look here between Ninth Street and 10th Street. Going with... hunter green?
The building was sold in the summer of 2018 for $9.5 million, per public records. The seller was linked to Ascot Properties NYC LLC while the buyer was listed as 151 Avenue A Member LLC with an address of their law firm.
Here's a look at the building from last fall as gut renovations were underway... it appeared that the residential portion of the building was vacant ...
Last fall we watched workers carry in steel beams (photos by Steven!). According to the approved permits via the Department of Buildings, there was an "interior renovation of hallways and replacement of structural elements ... on floors 2 though roof. Replacement of stair bulkhead."
Throughout the renovation, the retail tenant, Quick Repair & Electronics, was able to remain open.
