Developer Adam America has finished demolishing the six wood-frame houses and three commercial buildings at the corner of 4th Avenue and 11th Street, where a 12-story apartment building will eventually rise. The development at 470 4th Avenue will have 105 units, ground floor commercial space, and 36 underground parking spaces. As reported, Aufgang Architects is designing the building, which will look like this. Click through the jump for more photos of the destruction.

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.

Developer Adam America has put up a construction fence around 470 4th Avenue, the large development site where it plans to replace nine buildings on seven tax lots with a 12-story residential building. Demo permits were approved last year, before Adam America bought the property for $20,000,000 last month. A note in the file says demo was scheduled to begin March 6.

South Slope News spotted the fence and took the photo above.  Aufgang Architects filed a new building application for the development at the end of February. The number of units has not changed, and the building will be 12 stories (the developer previously said it could be 12 to 14 stories).

Other new details: The building will have 78,995 square feet of residential space. There will be 5,259 square feet of ground floor commercial space and community space occupied by a medical office. Amenities include bike storage for 53 bikes, 36 underground parking spots, a fitness room and a roof deck.
