Proposals in 2009 and in 2011 to alter the one-story commercial building on the lot into a five-story residential addition were rejected. In August of 2011, the lot traded from one LLC to another for $1,200,000, according to PropertyShark. The new owner submitted a plan to build six stories with 12 apartments in late 2011. That too was disapproved in 2011.
An existing one-story commercial building, previously a building supply shop, was demolished in 2012.
