Jackhammering erupted yesterday on Dean Street near Franklin Avenue in Crown Heights, where workers are putting up a plywood fence around part of the old Nassau Brewery complex. Demolition applications were filed and approved but not yet issued in July for the brick building at 1048 Dean Street and the wood buildings at 1042 Dean Street and 1046 Dean Street. (The brick building is pictured to the right of the blue shed, above, and after the jump.)
As we’ve already reported, ODA is designing a glassy mixed-use building here that will be eight stories high with 120 units, including 20 percent affordable.
