The large Western Carpet warehouse on Wythe Avenue between 4th and 5th streets is in the process of being taken down, clearing the way for a large, new 157-unit building that’s planned here. The warehouse, which was owned for decades by the family-run Western Carpet company, was purchased by the real estate fund AREA Property Partners for $27.5 million last year. A reader also noticed that the demolition had begun and sent in a bunch of photos; click through to see one of them.
