Digging in for a new Karl Fischer-designed rental on East Third Street

Every so often we'll post an update on an incoming development...

Here's a look at the progress at 316-318 E. Third St., where a Karl Fischer-designed, 33-unit apartment building is in the works...

...workers finished demolishing the house back in March. The home was last owned by Barden Prisant, a former member of Community Board 3, who now lives in Brooklyn. According to an article on living in Prospect Park South in the Times dated Oct. 6, 2011, Prisant and his wife "decided to sell their house in the East Village because a tall building was to go up next to their beloved backyard." (The in-progress Alphabet Plaza.)

Preservation groups to try to protect the circa-1835 house here, but the Landmarks Preservation Commission rejected a hearing. Construction on the new rental is expected to be completed by the end of November 2013.
