A tipster sent the above photo with some news of the Lightstone lot, at 1st Street between Bond and the Gowanus Canal. The action started up late last week, with a truck taking core drilling samples around 1st Street on Thursday. By Friday the trucks had moved to Bond Street. Lightstone announced in mid-March that they would build a 700-unit rental unit building as-of-right, complying with the zoning approved through the land-use review process for Two Trees. Construction is scheduled to begin by the end of 2013. Click through for more photos of the drilling action.
