Construction workers have appeared at the empty lot on Fleet Street and Myrtle Avenue, where the second rental building in line for the area after the Andrea is slated to go up. The owner, billionaire John Catsimatidis, filed plans with the DOB for a 15-story building with 160,000 square feet of residential space and 13,000 square feet of commercial space this summer. Renderings emerged in the fall. The tipster who sent in the above photo provides this update as well: “A month or two ago the cars and trucks normally parked there were moved out and construction fencing went up at Fleet and Myrtle. Then not much until a week or two ago when equipment showed up and started creating a large pile of dirt and debris, which this week is being scooped into dump trunks and hauled away.”
