Manhattan just lost yet another gas station to luxury condos. The last gas station in the East Village at 24 Second Avenue was bulldozed Thursday to make way for 45,000 square feet of condominiums with 5,700 square feet of retail.
AORE Holding, who purchased the site last year for $32 million, is developing the 10-story building at the former BP station site. The new building will house 32 units.
“The site is the last undeveloped piece of land in this neighborhood, and AORE’s project is expected to attract considerable interest” Trever Gallina, a director at Newmark Grubb Knight Frank Retail said at the time. [Bowery Boogie] – Christopher Cameron
