The building at 363 Bond Street that will be demolished early next weekLightstone Group has begun to dismantle the structure to make way for its 12 story, 700-unit rental complex. The Department of Buildings has issued demo permits not only for the silo, but also for a one story brick warehouse at 363 Bond Street at First Street which is in the footprint of the development.
In late December 20013, a similar old building at 365 Bond Street between First and Second Streets was taken down.
According to a flier that was placed on cars parked near 363 Bond Street, the area will be blocked off on Monday, April 14th at 6 AM, presumably for the demolition of the building.
Asbestos remediation was already underway yesterday.
As for the Silo at 388-400 Carroll Street, it is being dismantled piece by piece and will most probably be gone by next week. Until recently, the lot was known to many in Brooklyn as The Gowanus Grove/ Brooklyn Yard, where hundreds gathered on Summer week-ends for concerts, movie screenings and quite a few marriages.
