Demolition crews have started gutting and demolishing the six 19th-century wood-frame houses and two commercial buildings near the corner of 11th Street and 4th Avenue where developer Adam America is planning to put up a large 12-story apartment building on seven tax lots. The house at the far left end of the row on 11th Street, No. 233, has been knocked down, above, and most of the others are in the process of being gutted, their windows and doors gone.
A construction fence went up a week and half ago at 470 4th Avenue, and new building permits for the project were filed at the end of February. The building will have 105 units with ground floor commercial space, a medical office and underground parking, as we’ve previously reported. More photos after the jump.
