The Dead Pool: Rental Building at Driggs & N. 8

January 23rd, 2009 · 1 Comment

This overgrown field was the site of a bakery before it was demolished. Then foundation work was so frantic that it was going on until 4AM some nights and neighbors were calling the Department of Buildings. Now, nothing’s happened on the site for close to a year. It was being developed as a rental building by Kalmon Dolgan, and it’s still up on their website as a 50 unit rental buiding at 510 Driggs with occupancy expected in 2009. Okay. Sure. This is what we had to say about it in better days (AKA last year). To us it looks like an abandoned construction site and we’re putting it in our new Dead Pool of projects we suspect are gone with the wind. If anyone knows otherwise, do leave a comment. The permit for the building expired this week and someone immediately phoned in a complaint to DOB. There is a small building going up next door, however.

    nice selection for the dead pool. I’d add in the giant hole at N 3rd between Berry and Bedford. That was going to be that giant 4 tower complex – and yet – it’s nothing more than a pit.
