COURT SQUARE – Demolition permits have been filed for the one-story garage at 27-19 Thomson Ave. in Court Square. The garage, in a lot area of 3,600 square feet, is across the street from The Forge, Arris Lofts, and a block away from the Citigroup Building at One Court Square.
The garage is currently the site of “Manny Auto Electric”, a longstanding auto repair and diagnostic shop. Records show that the prior owner of the property, Lema Properties, sold the site to Thomson Development for $6.85 million on July 3.
The new owner of the site is listed as Tom Wu, who is also the developer behind “5 Court Square”, the upcoming 11-story building set to rise directly behind the garage and in the works since 2014. See renderings below.
