I'll be damned. Last week, the Long Island College Ambulatory Care site formerly known as the Anthony Anastasio International Longshoremen's Association Building at 340 Court Street had its ground floor windows boarded up. In addition, rat baiting warning signs appeared on the front door windows.
Just today, two men were busy painting the plywood black. That seems like a lot of trouble to go through for the Clarett Group, the development company that bought this huge site right in the heart of Carroll Gardens. Now rumor has it that Clarett wants to move quickly, so demolition of the existing building could happen very soon. No design has been presented yet, but hushed voices talk about townhouses along the side streets with a much taller building along Court. I like the sound of townhouses, but my idea of townhouse may be different than Clarett's.
In any case, the black paint on the plywood camouflages the fact that something big is about to happen at 340 Court.
