Emergency Demolition for Former New Beer Distributors on Chrystie Street
Construction of luxury condos on Chrystie Street destabilized a neighboring building, and the developer has scrambled to file emergency demolition permits.
Nexus Development – the firm behind a 10-story tower at 173 Chrystie Street – filed the permits after a purported “concrete blowout” at the project site a couple weeks ago. The incident damaged 171 Chrystie – one of the walls apparently has a huge hole – and requires immediate demolition due to its instability. (Nexus also owns 171.) This, of course, was formerly home to the New Beer Distributors garage, which shuttered back in March after fifty years in business, and Buddy Warren.
YIMBY had the scoop yesterday, and also opined that Nexus will likely plug the vacancy with an adjoining development.
As previously reported, the new luxury condo building at 173 Chrystie is designed by ODA, and will boast total floor area of 25,593 square-feet spread across 13 two- and three-bedroom apartments (plus public roof terrace). Tentative (moving) target is sometime in 2018, which seems unlikely.
