A bendy thing moment at 11 Avenue C as new development passes the halfway mark



The work has really progressed here at 11 Avenue C at Second Street... where the new 10-story residential building has been in the bendy-thing phase this summer...



You can see how far it has progressed...



That was after the foundation work started in December 2016 on this triangular lot that housed the neighborhood's last gas station. (Real-estate sites always incorrectly name the BP on Second Avenue at First Street.)

Rotwein + Blake are the architects of record. Here's more about 11 Avenue C/350 E. Houston St. via their website:

The narrow triangular site, presented numerous challenges from its odd shape to zoning constraints, Rotwein+Blake crafted a well thought-out solution to maximize potential development opportunity for the client. At ten stories, the building will have 4,600 SF of ground level retail, 46 residential apartments and a landscaped roof terrace.

The buildings retail component engages the more lively Houston Street side on a pedestrian level, with an abundance of storefront glass, awnings and stone details, while the residential entrance on 2nd Street, creates a more private and embracing gesture. The brick and zinc façade blend a modern twist to a historic warehouse style, reminiscent of the now, chic residential adaptive reuse projects of Soho and Tribeca.

The plywood rendering states the project's completion date as March 2018.

There's more activity now to note at 75 First Ave., where the bendy thing arrived yesterday morning for some cement-pumping action here next to the Rite Aid on Fifth Street.

Meanwhile, as previously reported earlier this month, sales are underway at the 8-floor, 22-unit condoplex. The three units on the market are asking between $1.79 million and $2.25 million.

Bendy thing action at a suddenly taller 185-193 Avenue B

[Photo yesterday by Bobby Williams]

Work has really picked up in recent weeks over at 185-193 Avenue B ... where it looks as if the crew is near the top of the 7-story mixed-used residential building going up at the corner here at East 12th Street.

In total, the building will have 41 dwelling units ... as well as house the Elim Pentecostal Church.

Bendy thing and the workers were still at it last night around 6...


The site has been a source of aggravation for neighbors since demolition started in July 2012... and even before, dating back to the fire that nearly destroyed the building in October 2006.

Bendy thing sighting as 84 Third Ave. eclipses the AMC Loews Village 7

Over on Third Avenue at East 12th Street, Goggla passes along a photo of the always-popular Bendy Thing at work on 84 Third Ave., the 12-story apartment complex...


Meanwhile, EVG regular peter radley notes that the building is poised to pass the height of the AMC Loews Village 7...



Where it stops? Nobody knows!

Bendy thing back in action on Second Avenue!

Oh, it has been so long since we've seen that concrete pump bendy thing at work over in the former 9-17 Second Ave. Anyway, Bendy is Back!
