Lightstone Gowanus Briefing August 23

The Lightstone Group recently contacted Community Board 6 about taking over the development of properties at 363-365 Bond Street in Gowanus (commonly referred to as the Toll Brothers site).

Lightstone will brief the community at the CB6 Landmarks/Land Use Committee at 6 p.m. on Thursday, August 23rd.

CB6 says they no details about their plans at this time, though Lightstone Group indicated that they are expecting to bring a formal land use action for public review this fall.

According to The Real Deal, Toll Brothers had planned to build 460 condos and townhouses at the site, but abandoned the project when the Gowanus gained Superfund status last year. The EPA says cancer-causing poly-aromatic hydrocarbons and other potentially harmful chemicals are present in the ground.
