Permits have been filed for a seven-story affordable housing building at 204 Avenue A in the East Village, Manhattan. Located between East 12th Street and East 13th Street, the interior lot is one city block south of the 1st Avenue subway station, serviced by the L train. New York City’s Housing Preservation and Development is listed as the owner on the applications. In December 2018, the site sought status as an Urban Development Action Area Project. Previous tenants had to vacate their residences in 2008 due to deteriorating structural conditions.
The proposed 69-foot-tall development will yield 14,029 square feet, with 9,309 square feet designated for residential space and 1,464 square feet for commercial use. It will have ten residences, with an average unit scope of 930 square feet. The apartments will be cooperative and sold to the former, relocated tenants. There will be commercial space on the ground floor, recreational space on the rooftop, and a 34-foot-long rear yard.
Nicole Vlado of Shakespeare Gordon Vlado Architects is responsible for the design.
