We previously mentioned that the FedEx Office Print & Ship Center was moving into a newly renovated space a few doors away.
Meanwhile, Kapri Cleaners is staying in this strip, as EVG contributor Stacie Joy reports... previously shuttered along this corridor.
So why all the movement? We've heard rumblings (via several EVG commenters) about a new residential building for this strip — perhaps something like EVGB that swallowed up the small businesses along 14th Street between Avenue A and Avenue B a few years back.
However, this is speculation at this point: Nothing about a new building or demolition has shown up in DOB records.
The 13-floor residential building at 250 E. Houston St., the former Red Square, changed ownership in the fall of 2016 ... and underwent extensive renovations.
Thanks to Stacie Joy for the photos!
