Lightstone Site Cleared in Gowanus

Surveyors have been spotted and the lot has been cleared of debris at 363-365 Bond Street, the site of Lightstone Group’s massive planned development right next to the Gowanus Canal, Gowanus Your Face Off reported. After seeing surveyors painting white excavation markers, GYFO thinks demolition “is nigh” for the property, where Lightstone plans to build a 700-unit rental building. And in fact, we noticed, DOB issued a demolition permit for 365 Bond the first week of September. Crews are clearing out grass and weeds, cutting down trees and clearing out the insides of 363 Bond for demolition. And flatbed trucks have been dropping off construction vehicles over the past two weeks, according to GWFO. A tipster sent us this photo of part of the site, the former Gowanus Grove party space, which had its last hurrah earlier this month.
