Way back in 2008, the three low-rise buildings at 324-326 Grand Street were torn down to make way for an 18-story apartment building by the infamous Baruch Singer. But when the market crashed, so did those plans, and the half-finished foundation has sat empty. In 2011, the site sold, and now, finally, something is happening. The LoDown reports that the construction fencing has been replaced, and work permits were reactivated.
The neighbors will be pleased to know that the building's height has been chopped from the originally planned 18-20 stories to just seven stories. It will have 20 residential units in 13,692 square-feet, plus 3,738 square-feet of commercial space. The neighbors will not be pleased to learn that the Singer family may still be involved with the project. Despite the sale, an Avi Singer is still listed on the DOB permits.
