The East Village's last gas station is officially no more. The former BP (and Gulf and Exxon) station at 24 Second Avenue was demolished on Thursday, Bowery Boogie reports. That makes way for 10-story building with 32 residential units (though EV Grieve reports 31, as have previous Curbed reports), plus retail space. AORE Holdings LLC purchased the site back in 2014 for $32 million and the lender is Ladder Capital.
The building was designed by RSVP Studio and will have 45,000 square feet of residential space and 5,700 square feet of retail. It will have storage for 16 bicycles, a fitness room, and a second floor "outdoor tenant recreation area."
