A reader tipped us off that there was new construction activity happening on Frederick Douglass Blvd between 116th and 117th Street. Apparently a retail space on the eastside of the street was being gutted and cleaned for another MetroPCS. That’s odd since there is already a MetroPCS on FDB between 113th and 114th Street, and there is one on 116th and Lenox Avenue as well.
While I was in the area, I noticed the auto shop had a big lease sign hanging on the gates. The owners are leasing the space to anyone who can come up with their preferred change. Once that happens, the renters can do as they wish with the space….except tear it down for condos! The person I spoke with made it clear, that space is not for sale!!! Got it!
