Nevada Smith'sBy Kevin Korber of Village Confidential

Well-known East Village hot spot Nevada Smith’s recently left its old 3rd Avenue location under unusual circumstances, leaving the fate of the building that once housed it uncertain. Nevada Smith’s owner Patrick McCarthy spoke of plans to “demolish most of the block and replace our place…with a new luxury apartment block.” As it turns out, McCarthy may have been right: The Local reports that the bar’s former 3rd Avenue location is poised to become the next project from ubiquitous architect Karl Fischer.

Fischer has made his presence in the Village very well-known in recent years, with buildings at Bowery and East Houston Street, as well as an upcoming project on East 12th Street. According to a plan rejected by the Department of Buildings, Fischer was looking to turn the former Nevada Smith’s into an 82,000 square foot, nine-story tower with retail space and 94 condos. However, the filed plans were disapproved by the Department of Buildings because of zoning issues, according to a DOB spokesperson.

Fischer filed new plans with the DOB in February; those plans are currently “in process.” Neither Fischer nor the construction company attached to the project opted to comment on the issue at this time.

As for Nevada Smith’s, it moved to a new location at 100 1st Avenue last week.
