Following a three-month pause after a December demolition, the Lightstone Group’s controversial 700-unit rental development along the Gowanus Canal is moving forward.

The developer filed the first new building application for the project at 363 Bond Street on Feb. 28, which calls for a 12-story building with 268 units. The structure would span 249,571 square feet in total and include a 3,625-square-foot commercial space.

A basketball court, 111 underground parking spaces, gym, locker rooms, lounge, children’s play area, bike storage and a pool are also planned for the building, according to the Schedule A filing.

The development is the first phase of a planned 700-unit rental project at 363-365 Bond Street that was initially launched by Toll Brothers but abandoned in 2010. The development is slated for completion in the fall of 2015, according to previous reports. Residents of Gowanus staged protests against the project last year.

Lightstone is chugging along next door at 388 Carroll Street as well, where a new round of demolition applications have been filed to take down a storage shed and two silos, Brownstoner reported. [Brownstoner]Julie Strickland
