As you may recall, we heard a rumor last fall that there were preliminary plans in place to build a 7-floor residential building in the long-emtpy lot at 89 First Ave. between East Fifth Street and East Sixth Street.
The rumor gained strength in March when workers cut down 10 trees and cleared the brush from the lot.
There still aren't any permits on file with the DOB noting impending construction ... however, workers recently cleared out the weeds growing in the lot.
And yesterday, EVG reader Sam Teichman spotted a crew inside the lot during the morning hours...

And this morning, EVG reader EVA spotted workers drilling and soil testing on the lot ... usually a sign of incoming development.
