Well, this was really just a matter of waiting for the permit...
Preservation groups tried to protect 316 E. Third St., a circa-1835 house. Unfortunately, the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) rejected a hearing on the matter last fall.
And here are the permits that the city issued yesterday. The way things are going around here, workers probably already tore down the place.
So, the townhouse that formerly belonged to Community Board 3 member Barden Prisant (who moved his family to Prospect Park South) will become a Karl Fischer-designed, 33-unit apartment building, as Curbed first reported last August. (The garden and trees to the east of the house will also be dug up to become part of the new structure.)
Last week, developer David Amirian told the Post that he will offer only studios and one bedroom units here. "The market right now is to build rental. You want to build affordable housing for young people," he said.
One last thing: The DOB has yet to actually approve the plans for the new building.
