After months without much visible progress, Selden Standard exploded from hiding on Thursday. Ripping off a good chunk of brick facade, workers eliminated the last traces of the building's southern storefront. That space, formerly a dry cleaners, is being combined with the adjacent storefront (a former church) to create one big restaurant.
According to Selden Standard's website, the official ETA is this fall— pretty impressive for a building that once lacked a roof. Once construction finishes up, expect a bar up front, a patio out back, and a nicer-looking park right next door.
