The old 1st Avenue Hotel on Broadway hasn’t been in use since 2013. The last tenant was the El Diablo restaurant which closed after a dispute with the city over safety concerns and fire updates to the building.

El Diablo on Thursday (credit: CBS) reports that a developer wants to turn the building into micro apartments. They would be around 350 square feet and rent for $850 to $900 a month.
