There hasn’t been word about 9 Old Fulton Street—a building that was destroyed in a fire years ago—for more than a year, when the lot’s owner presented plans to the community board to build a four-story structure with three apartments and commercial space on the ground floor. A variance request for the new project was recently filed with the Board of Standards and Appeals since the lot isn’t zoned for commercial use, but plans for the structure have already been approved by Landmarks. One of the developers, Tony Prano, told us yesterday that work on the building should start within the next few months provided the BSA gives its blessing. This lot is next door to 11-15 Old Fulton Street, a series of dilapidated buildings that were recently put up for sale.
