Construction watch: 650 E. 6th St.

Here's a progress report on the 6-story, 5-unit condoplex rising at 650 E. Sixth St. just west of Avenue C.

This project has been a long time in the making.

As New York Yimby noted in January 2016: "The 8,491-square-foot project will include 7,761 square feet of residential space, which means units will average 1,552 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums."

The four-story apartment building that previously stood here was demolished in early 2018... two years after the condoplex plans were initially revealed. 

Combined Architecture has a rendering of the new building...
This will be the second new building in the corridor ... joining the one starting on the northeast corner of Sixth Street and Avenue C.

Rendering watch: 650 E. 6th St.

There doesn't seem to be much activity over at 650 E. Sixth St., where a new residential building is in the works (for some time). 

The previous building on the lot, a four-story apartment building, was previously demolished here just west of Avenue C to make way for a 6-story structure that will apparently house five residences.

A rendering of the new condoplex is now on the plywood... 
This comes more than five years after the building's new owners filed plans for the project. (The DOB OK'd the new building permit in December 2017.) The completion date on the rendering is fall 2022.

As New York Yimby noted in January 2016: "The 8,491-square-foot project will include 7,761 square feet of residential space, which means units will average 1,552 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums."

Public records show that this building changed hands for $2.8 million in August 2013. The new owner is named East Village LLC in the filing.

This will be the second new building in the corridor ... joining the one just starting on the northeast corner of Sixth Street and Avenue C.

A future look at the former 650 E. 6th St.



Beyond the plywood here are the remains of 650 E. Sixth St., the former four-story building just west of Avenue C that workers demolished to make way for a 7-story building that will apparently house condos.



This comes nearly three years after the building's new owners filed plans for the project.

As New York Yimby noted in January 2016: "The 8,491-square-foot project will include 7,761 square feet of residential space, which means units will average 1,552 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums."

No sign of an official rendering just yet via RSVP Architecture Studio, whose other EV work includes the BP-replacing condoplex on Second Avenue and First Street.

This is this on the plywood...

650 E. 6th St.prepped for demolition; new condoplex on the way



An EVG reader shared the news this past Friday that workers started prepping the four-story 650 E. Sixth St. for demolition.

The building here just west of Avenue C is coming down to make way for a 7-story building that will apparently house condos.



This comes nearly two years after the building's new owners filed plans for the project. (The DOB OK'd the new-building permit in December.)

As New York Yimby noted in January 2016: "The 8,491-square-foot project will include 7,761 square feet of residential space, which means units will average 1,552 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums."

Public records show that this building changed hands for $2.8 million in August 2013. The new owner is named East Village LLC in the filing.

No sign of a rendering just yet via RSVP Architecture Studio, whose other EV work includes the incoming condoplex on Second Avenue and First Street.

Meanwhile, in a positive development on this block, the city finally removed one of the two portable boilers late last year that had been parked here since Superstorm Sandy in 2012.

Report: Plans in the works to convert 650 E. 6th St. to condos

There are big plans for this unassuming 4-story building at 650 E. Sixth St. between Avenue B and Avenue C.

Plans were filed this week for a 7-story building on the property that's closer to Avenue C.

Here's New York Yimby, who had the scoop on this development: "The 8,491-square-foot project will include 7,761 square feet of residential space, which means units will average 1,552 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums."

Public records show that this building changed hands for $2.8 million in August 2013. The new owner is named East Village LLC in the filing.

As NYY noted, the "existing four-story, three-unit building must first be demolished."

In the grand scheme of things, $2.75 million doesn't seem like that much for this, huh? Anyway, by the time you finish this post, Jared Kushner will have purchased it...
