Full demolition permits have been filed for 114 East 14th Street, the former retail space of P.C. Richard & Sons, also known as 124 East 14th Street. The appliance shop closed their two-story, 20,000-square-foot location last winter. In November of 2018, we reported the city’s Economic Development Corp. has been soliciting proposals to redevelop the site into new office space for up and coming business tenants in creative and tech industries in the neighborhood, and had since filed new construction permits for a 22-floor commercial building.
Located at the corner of 14th Street and Irving Place, the interior lot is situated one block from major subway hub Union Square Station, serviced by the 4, 5, 6, L, N, Q, R, and W Trains.
Rory Melvin of NYC Economic Development Corp. is listed as the owner on the latest filings. Although no new updates are available regarding housing in the proposed 286-foot tall structure, previous filing details include a projected 237,838 square footage plan, with 209,246 square feet dedicated to commercial space and 100,014 square feet to residential use.
