Permits have been filed for Freedom Village, a 13-story residential building at 268 East 2nd Street in Manhattan’s East Village. Located at the intersection of Avenue C and East 2nd Street, the corner lot is three avenue blocks east of the 2nd Avenue subway station, serviced by the F train. Non-profit Barrier Free Living is listed as the owner behind the applications. YIMBY revealed renderings and details of a housing development at 270 East 2nd Street by this developer in December 2018. It is unclear if the design have changed with this permit filing.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story residential building at 645 East 9th Street in Alphabet City, Manhattan. Located between Avenue B and Avenue C, the through lot is a short walk to the First Avenue subway station, serviced by the L train. Center Development Corporation is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Applications for alterations to an existing four-story building at 624 East 9th Street flew under the radar late last year, when permits for interior modifications were filed with the Department of Buildings. But beyond the revamp to the insides, the structure, located in Alphabet City, is actually going to receive a complete redo of its exterior as well, as YIMBY can now reveal.
Back in April, YIMBY reported that BSD Realty had refiled permits for a new building coming to 243 East 7th Street, between Avenues C and D in the East Village/Alphabet City. Now, we have the reveal for the project, which is being designed by Issac & Stern Architects.
In the beginning of 2015, YIMBY reported on filings for a 12-story, 108-unit mixed-use building at 79-89 Avenue D, in the Alphabet City section of the East Village, and now DNAinfo reports the development is moving forward. Earlier this month, Rite Aid was the final tenant to move out of the property assemblage, and within the past few days, L+M Development Partners filed demolition permits to raze the single-story retail buildings. The project will include 22 affordable residential units as well as 7,693 square feet of ground-floor retail. Also, all the residential units will be rentals and should average 821 square feet apiece. GF55 Partners is the architect of record.
