Construction has been going on at 58 East 18th Street, by Church Avenue, for a little while now, but we just noticed the property management company has put up a giant “For Lease” sign on the structure that will become a 3,000-square-foot building with 5,000 square feet for parking.
According to the sign posted on the building, which is located by a number of large apartment buildings, the Church Avenue B/Q subway station, and the incoming Q Gardens, the space is “ideal for a laundromat.” Another sign at the work site (located across the street from Checkers) stated that construction is projected to be completed in December of this year.
The city Department of Buildings first issued a work permit for the construction of a new building at the site in August 2013. The most recent work permit was issued in May. A DOB complaint was filed for the site in June for the “construction site being unsafe.” The complaint is now closed, with the DOB noting that the “unsafe steel cylinder was removed.”
So, thoughts? What do you think should go there?
