GOWANUS — The Ninth Street building where dozens of artists and musicians were kicked out after a new landlord took over is scheduled to get a gut renovation, city records show.
The four-story building at 94 Ninth St. will undergo a $100,000 interior renovation, according to a building permit approved in April. The renovation will "remove non-load bearing partitions throughout the building," according to the permit.
The fate of 94 Ninth St. has been closely watched since its artist and musician tenants were told last fall their leases wouldn't be renewed.
Department of Building records don't indicate what the building will be used for after it's remodeled, but the permit states that the property will remain a commercial building.
The new landlord, developer Eli Hamway, could not reached immediately for comment Thursday.
The building is in a manufacturing zone that's also part of the city's South Brooklyn Industrial Business Zone, which was created to protect existing manufacturing districts.
