Bond Street looking at the 365 Bond Street siteLightstone Group, the developer of the mega housing development at 363 Bond Street and 365 Bond Street in Gowanus has sent out a construction update through its public relationship firm
Geto & de Milly, Inc.
Late last week, another announcement was sent out to "provide you with an overview of upcoming work on Lightstone’s Gowanus site during the month of May."
Julie Hendricks-Atkins of Geto & de Milly, Inc., writes:
"Starting on Monday, May 11th, Lightstone’s construction team will be conducting work to facilitate utility connections to the project. The work will take place on Bond Street between 1st and 2nd Streets. Bond Street will remain open to traffic during this work; however, some parking spaces along the block will be temporarily designated as “No Parking” areas. Lightstone anticipates that the work will be completed within approximately three to four weeks."
The first portion of the 700 rental unit project has risen quickly on the 365 Bond Street site between First Street and Second Street. The second part of the development, which will rise at 363 Bond Street between Carroll Street and First Street, is yet to be built.
Though it is only half built, it certainly is evident that the project is quite huge. It also is amazing to see exactly how close to the Gowanus Canal it really is.
The buildings' future tenants will be in for a rough time when he EPA starts dredging the coal tar from the bottom of this Superfund site. And let us not even talk about the next superstorm and any related flooding.
