A tipster sent along this photo of work starting up at 111-113 Kane Street, an empty lot between Hicks and Columbia streets near the Columbia Street Waterfront. According to an old Massey Knakal press release, the lot (with 8,100 buildable square feet) sold for $1,625,000 this summer. The DOB issued a new building permit for seven stories and 14 units, but we found another building application for this site approving six stories and 12 units. So what’s it gonna be? Regardless of how many stories, this area isn’t landmarked so the facade will be a toss up.
