Preliminary work underway at city-owned empty lot on 3rd Street
An EVG reader said that there was a Davey Drill taking core samples last week in the long-empty lot at 276 E. Third St. between Avenue C and Avenue D...
Public records show that the NYC Housing Preservation and Development owns the property ... and there are approved plans on file (since 2008) with the DOB for construction of a 4-story building. The work permit shows that this will be an "eight bed group home for children."
Not sure of that is still the city's intention for the new building. In any event, it looks as if the lot is being prepped for some future construction.
