It sounds like things are starting to happen at the nascent lot of 232 Seventh Avenue, as a tipster has informed us that a sidewalk bridge has been installed in front of the to-be demolished lowrise buildings currently occupying 232, 234, and 236 Seventh Avenue. They also passed along some renderings of the building-to-be; a 17-story mixed-use development that will entertain two retail spaces on the first floor.
The DOB lists the architect on record as Damir Dan Sehic of C3D Architecture. In addition to ground floor retail, the 53,000-square-foot building will feature 49 rental apartments, a rooftop terrace, top-floor recreation room, and basement bike storage, laundry, and recreation room. According to C3D's website, the building will feature accentuated limestone columns with combination of metal panels and full height glass facade. The new building will assume the space of three three-story buildings on Seventh Avenue between 23rd and 24th streets.
