Vacant Attorney Street Lot Prepped for 8-Story Luxury Rental
Once the vacant lot at 91 Attorney Street was razed and cleared of debris in 2009, the parcel remained dormant for another eight years. That is, until its reactivation earlier this year.
Developer Morris Platt picked up the long-neglected lot for $4 million back in 2013. Two years later, he partnered with Marin Architects to drop an eight-story rental building on the site. Plans were filed with the city in August 2015 but then languished until this past January when Department of Buildings finally issued the necessary permits.
Then, earlier this month, the city approved demolition permits to remove the dilapidated two-story brick garage at the adjacent 95 Attorney, increasing the overall footprint for building.
With the parcel now cleared of any obstruction, work can now proceed on the eight-story residential building. DOB signage is up (though, incorrectly noting a commercial development) and permits posted. This new construction will boast 46,380 square-feet of living space spread across 44 rental units, each with a balcony.
