Yes, it would appear the much talked about 7-11 is back on track in Greenpoint. Do these men have the legal right to gut this property? It depends on how you look at it. The property (still) has a standing Stop Work Order per the Department of Buildings.


Yet the Department of Buildings, in their esoteric wisdom, has seen fit to issue a permit to make this space a “convenience store”. Because, you know, what Greenpoint needs more of is “convenience stores” at the intersection of Greenpoint and Manhattan Avenue.

Will Argonaut Inc. confine their “alterations” to the interior? I can only hope so. This building is, after all (and once again) as Brooklyn11211 pointed out: located in a landmark district. What’s more, I think it’s rather nifty.

Hopeful, but not optimistic.
