In the summer of 2015, a developer filed plans to replace the East Village’s last gas station with a condo building. Two and a half years later, that condo has now topped out, and been largely fitted with its facade, new construction site photos published by YIMBY reveal.
The building sits near the corner of Second Avenue and First Street, and now stands 10 stories tall. When complete, the building will bring a total of 31 apartments to the East Village, and the apartments here will measure about 1,700 square feet on average.
In addition to the condos, there are also plans for 6,000 square feet of retail on the ground floor. The project is being developed by AORE Capital and RSVP Studio designed the building.
The condo replaced the BP gas station that stood at this corner for several years until it closed in the summer of 2014. The structure was demolished later that year to make way for the condo.
Sales on the condo have been underway for a while now with apartments ranging in price from $1.125 million and going up to $8.7 million, according to StreetEasy. YIMBY estimates that construction on the project will wrap by the end of the year.
