Art Deco FiDi Office Building Starts Condo Conversion Process

New, 1 comment

When we first heard that FiDi office building 116 John Street might be the area's next condo conversion, it was with the caveat that things would happen veeery slowly while the Metro Loft Management and Hacienda International Realty team cleared out the building's office tenants. But a tipster reports that work on FiDi's next office-to-condo project has begun. "The scaffolding is up all the way around the building, and after hours demo permits that have been issued for just about every floor above 9 have made working late a rather thrilling venture for the remaining tenants." When we swung by, there wasn't much to see in the way of construction activity, but plenty of permits for interior demolition have been filed.

Architect Avinash K. Malhotra, last seen at Dwell95 and Brooklyn Gold, is the one listed on the permits. Still no word on what amenities will compete with the local bowling alley.
