Work underway on 8-story residential building with affordable housing for 10th Street lot

Work is underway on the long-empty lot at 351 E. 10th St. between Avenue B and Avenue C ...
News of housing here dates to October 2019, when 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 noted that more affordable housing was set for this 10th Street parcel.

This lot will yield an 8-floor residential building featuring 28 residences. We don't know how many of these units will be designated as affordable.

The rendering at the lot lists a completion date of Sept. 1, 2023... 
John Scobie of the NYC-based developer Center Development Corp. is listed as the property owner. 

Housing plans 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.

Since those pictures were taken, the sidewalk was completely blocked over the weekend, and still is. Now at nights, you have to cross to the other side, which is an unsafe patch of unlit filthy sidewalk, covered with scaffolding, and sometimes housing some shady characters.

Make sure to send a note to Carlina Rivera about that and the shady characters in particular. If this misplaced desire to end removal of encampments really takes hold we will all have to deal with more people on the street in our neighborhood.

"We don't know how many of these units will be designated as affordable"

This means a token amount of affordable housing which still gives politicians like Riverva something to brag about.

The projected time to finish is also a fantasy, double that time and you might get closer to realty.

Affordable, for those that can afford it. Recently, the word affordable has become a gentle and deceptive replacement for the word luxury.

I see buildings rising up in the air in record times in recent years. Since, you know, they build them from the cheapest crappiest materials, and they all look like shite 10 years later.

So how many locals will be able to live here looks good on paper?.
