The corner lot at 110th street and Central Park North that previously housed a gas station will be transformed over the next three years into a glassy 12-story development with 50 apartments and retail on the ground floor.
Twenty percent of the apartments are expected to be income-restricted, although the exact income limits are not yet clear. It should be complete by 2017. The address is 2040 Frederick Douglass Boulevard.
As for the gas station, which many readers said had their favorite repair shop in the city, it’s not clear if it has relocated. We made inquiries, but the answers were vague. One of the workers posted this comment on our last post:
“THIS IS TOM FROM 110 ST SORRY I DID NOT KNOW THAT THE SHOP WAS CLOSING ANY WAY 1 AND THE GUYS IS TRYING TO LOCATE A GARAGE IN THE NEIGHBOR HOOD. IT IS VERY HARD IN THE MEAN TIME YOU CAN GO TO 106 ST 1ST AVE MISS YOU GUYS SINCERELY TOM WILL KEEP IN TOUCH
