A long-vacant East Village lot is getting a six-story Karl Fischer-designed residential building, EV Grieve reported.
The site, at 427 East 12th Street between First Avenue and Avenue A, was bought in April 2010 for $1.87 million by developer Shaky Cohen. The low-profile developer also enlisted Fischer to design buildings on his properties at 263 Broadway and 255 Bowery.
The 2,500-square-foot 12th Street lot had once belonged to funeral director Adam Macagna, who sold it to an LLC in 2007 that, according to EV Grieve, had poured the foundation for a six-story residential building in 2008. [EV Grieve]
