Checking in on the progress at 27 Avenue D, where the Educational Alliance is adding an extension to their existing building here between East Third Street and East Fourth Street.
This location of the Educational Alliance, a co-ed outpatient facility for adults struggling with chemical dependencies, will use the new 6-story building for housing patients in their treatment programs.

As previously reported… after digging the foundation for the extension, the site sat dormant for several years, collecting water and reportedly breeding mosquitos.
In the summer of 2012, the Orchard Alley community garden on East Fourth Street had to close due to the mosquito infestation coming from the water-filled site at 27 Avenue D.

Back in the summer of 2012, the Orchard Alley community garden on East Fourth Street closed due to a "mosquito hazard" coming from the long-stalled site at 27 Avenue D, where the Educational Alliance planned to add an extension to their existing building. (NY1 covered the story here.)
There's plenty of progress to report here now … as the city has signed off on all the necessary permits.
The work continues…
The rendering on the plywood shows a building looking like…
After digging the foundation for the extension, the site sat dormant, collecting water and reportedly breeding mosquitos, dating back to 2008.
The Educational Alliance location at 25 Avenue D is a co-ed facility "for adults struggling with chemical dependencies." The extension will reportedly offer housing for its residents. DOB permits put the cost estimate for the new building at $4.9 million.
