A four-floor Chelsea building ravaged by Superstorm Sandy will be reborn as a new nine-unit residential building.
The walk-up building at 92 Eighth Avenue near 14th street has sat vacant and shrouded since the storm triggered the collapse of its front facade, revealing its interiors “like an open doll house.” With all of its similarly furnished rooms exposed to onlookers, it was soon discovered the building operated as an illegal hotel catering to European travelers.
Demolition permits filed earlier this month are a sure sign workers will soon begin dismantling the building. The construction permit notes that the new building will be approximately 12,000 square feet “with commercial on first floor and residential units above.” C3D Architecture is listed as the architects of record and Big Apple Properties as the owner.
