A commercial building in Inwood that was gutted by a fire last year will be rebuilt, according to DNAinfo.

The owner of 4941 Broadway at West 207th Street plans to reconstruct the property into a two-story commercial building. The new space, which is scheduled to be open next summer, will be anchored by a TD Bank, according to the owner, BLDG Oceanside.

“Construction started [Thursday] and it should be completed in about May or June,” said Larry Hilaire, a representative of owner BLDG.

Once finished, the 20,000-square-foot building will have additional retail space on the second floor, although no other tenants have signed on yet.

A site plan for the building, submitted to the Department of Buildings, shows that eight new trees will be planted around the building, with six lining Broadway and two being placed on West 207th Street.

In January 2012, a fire destroyed 4941 Broadway, which previously housed a number of small businesses and bank branch offices. The prior tenants included Bread and Yoga, Dichter’s Pharmacy, Furry Fiends, Splash Laundromat, Bank of America, Citibank and a lawyer’s office. A vacant lot currently sits on the site.

Several of the prior tenants have found new homes in the area in the meantime. [DNAinfo] – James Comtois
