The vacant lot at 91 Attorney Street has been inactive ever since the two-story brick remains onsite were completely razed in 2009.

During the interim, locals took to some guerrilla gardening, growing vegetables and the like. There was also digging for foundation support behind 88 Clinton Street. Now the parcel is set for certain re-development. Morris Platt has been tapped as developer of record, and will proceed to plug the hole with eight stories of residential living. Marin Architects is designing the building. Application materials were filed with the Department of Buildings yesterday.

The final product will boast 29,337 square-feet of residential space split between 44 units. Each floor will have five or six apartments. There is no retail component.

Meanwhile, a stop-work order from 2008 is still on the property for unsafe site conditions.
