In April 2009, we noted that there was an LPC hearing to review an application for 9 Old Fulton Street in the Fulton Ferry Historic District, a vacant lot, to construct a four-story building with a one-story penthouse (Zoned M2-1). There was an agenda item for the October 13, 2009 public meeting on 9 Old Fulton Street. According to the LPC meeting minutes, the hearing was “laid over”, which means it was not discussed. An attendee who emailed us stated that “their application was withdrawn without a hearing; apparently their architect didn’t turn up. Their project apparently has been amended to go even higher than initially intended; now it includes a rooftop penthouse that is about 10-15 feet higher than all the rooftops on that block.”
According to the NYC.gov BIS site, the plans for this building project at 9 Old Fulton have been disapproved (BIS 9 Old Fulton). A resident in Fulton Ferry notes that the “owner may be trying to re-file, as there are flags up on the building next door, which presumably are intended to mark the top of the proposed building. Notably, it’s still 10 or so feet higher than the surrounding buildings.”
The 7 Old Fulton Street restaurant, previously discussed here in January, named “Old Fulton Restaurant” looks nearly complete. Does anyone know the opening date?
Finally, the retail location in the townhouse next to Grimaldi’s is open for rent. A listing on the aptandlofts.com site shows a 1,800 sqft space for $7500 per month. Any takers?
