Demoliton started in mid-November ahead of a new mixed-used building for the property here between Avenue A and Avenue B. The demolition has been a challenge/nuisance to nearby residents — especially when jack-hammering starts at 7:30 a.m. on a holiday. There have also been dust complaints, per city records.
Here's a look from late last week at the now-empty lot courtesy of EVG contributor Stacie Joy... YouTube.
As for what's next, there's a filing with the DOB for a 6-story mixed-use residential building, as we reported on Jan. 3 ... (click on the image for more detail) ...the former Red Square that opened in 1989.
For now, not much will likely happen on the empty plots.
Revisit this EVG post from 2016 for a photo of this property before Red Square arrived in the late 1980s.
