The developers and architects of The Lower East Side Residential Complex Avalon Chrystie Place are being sued for violating the Fair Housing Act. The U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, Michael Garcia, announced a U.S. civil rights lawsuit against CVP I LLC, Downtown Manhattan Residential LLC, Chrystie Venture Partners, Avalon Bay Communities and SLCE Architects LLP on Monday. The suit claims the building at the building at 229 Chrystie Place discriminates against people with disabilities because it isn’t accessible to disabled people. This is the government’s first lawsuit in Manhattan alleging violations of the Fair Housing Act in the design and construction of a multi-family building. TRD
