A demolition permit was approved last week by the Department of Buildings that paves the way for the bulldozing of 5 Court Square, located on the corner of Jackson and Thomson Avenues
The building includes several stores– including ENC Market, Domino’s Pizza and a Montessori school.
The owner of ENC Market said that he had been informed that the building was being demolished and was waiting to get word that it was time to leave. Meanwhile, Dominos Pizza is about to leave its premises and the Montessori School is looking to relocate nearby.
The demolition permit comes nine months after the property was bought by Jackson 2524 LLC, a Great Neck, Long Island-based company for $15.75 million. The property was sold by AF Court Square LLC and Alanv LLC.
The previous owner(s) filed plans in September 2014 for an eleven story building with 73 dwelling units and ground floor retail. That application was denied April 15, although the current owner is challenging the decision.
