Renderings were recently revealed of the 12-story, 24-unit mixed-use building planned at 86 Delancey Street, located on the corner of Orchard Street on the Lower East Side. Now, municipal workers have painted over the elaborate and legal graffiti art installed on the existing two-story commercial building, Mass Appeal reported. The currently property owner, developer David Escava, never gave the city his personal permission to paint over the building, but the previous owner did a decade ago. The structure received demolition permits September 1. The site’s next occupant is expected to measure 29,437 square feet and will feature retail space and residential units. SWA Architecture is designing, although a completion date has not been announced.

  1. Knock colorful down to underground, before new working on 12-story into Lower East Side.

  2. Who gives a flying sh*t?

    • Exactly! Big f*cking deal. The building was coming down anyway. The demo permits have been filed, the wrecking ball is on the way. Adios! Arrivederci! Bye Bye!
