No Day of Rest at 340 Court, as Application is Filed
When we passed by the 340 Court Street development site late Saturday afternoon (the site of come contentious asbestos removal, among other things) on our way back from the Idiotarod finish line in Red Hook, all was quiet. Not so on Sunday, however. Our special Carroll Gardens-Cobble Hill correspondent reported early yesterday (when people shouldn't have to be emailing about this kind of thing) that it was very busy:
Today, a Sunday, they were at it again at 340 Court. Windows and doors were covered in billowing visquine on the top floor and a loud generator was heard roaring away, all the way down on the street!In the meantime, demolition is expect to start soon, although permits have not been issued. Department of Buildings records do so, however, that an application for a new building was filed last week by Rogers Marvel Architects. The application is for a permit to build a seven-story building with 106,125 square feet. Residents have complained that the developer--the Clarett Group--has not shown the design to anyone in the community or consulted with them about the plans.
