The present and future of the NW corner of 1st Avenue and 2nd Street

The three-parcel property at 33-37 First Ave. is disappearing. Workers are focusing on demolishing the tallest building, the 5-story No. 37 (where the New Double Dragon was in the retail space).
As previously reported, a 7-floor residential building with ground-floor retail is now slated for 33-37 First Ave., the vacant three-building assemblage between Second Street and Third Street. 

According to DOB paperwork, the proposed building — using the address 88 E. Second St. — will be 19,278 square feet, with 2,994 square feet designated for commercial space. Plans call for 22 residential units, likely rentals, given the square footage. 

We haven't seen a rendering for the project yet... though we did spot this schematic for the address...
If this is, in fact, an accurate look at the new building, it appears the residential entrance will be on Second Street. 

The filings list Manny Ashourzadeh of Romah Management Corp. as the owner.

How excellent that every unit has a balcony. Perfect for viewing the EV's vibrant street life, colorful interactions, and various species of rodentia.

I home they have business for the retail space because vacant places in the East Village will be heavily vandalized and destroyed fast

There was also (rumored) a rub and tug spot on the corner on the 2nd floor😂
