Longtime readers may recall that the former building at 816 Washington was completely destroyed by fire: http://www.brooklynian.com/discussion/33475/look-up-in-the-air-update-washingtonst-johns-fire/p1
After years of court processes re: whether the landlord was guilty of arson and (if he was) whether he should have to build rent stabilized housing to replace the rent stabilized housing that burned down, I am pleased to report that we are suddenly getting a construction fence, as opposed to merely a perimeter fence with murals.
The light colored posts showed up yesterday.
No new renderings have been filed with DOB, so I believe we will be getting a building that complies with the plans submitted several years ago.
I have no word on whether it will be market or subsidized.
