Rybak converting former East Village drag cabaret into apartments
Plans call for 22 resi units
The former home of drag show venue Lucky Cheng’s will soon become a venue for construction.
According to a permit application filed with the city Thursday, Rybak Development plans to erect a seven-story residential building at 101 East 2nd Street and First Avenue in the East Village.
Rybak, mostly a condominium developer in Brooklyn, plans for a 19,000-square-foot building with 22 apartments. The ground floor will include a “recreation space.”
Sergey Rybak did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
