Something big and new is headed to Alphabet City, but first what's there must go away. Demolition plans have been filed for the single-story storefronts at 79-89 Avenue D, DNAinfo reported. Demolition will pave the way for construction of a new 12-story building, developed by L+M Development Partners. The mixed-use development will have 88,671 square feet of residential space for 110 units, plus 7,693 square feet of commercial space for ground-floor retail.
Businesses on the soon-to-be-demolished stretch have already closed up shop. The Rite Aid has relocated a block north, according to EV Grieve.
