San Francisco-based Carmel Partners officially completed the purchase of a downtown development site for $171 million.

The transaction, which was first reported by The Real Deal in June, also includes development rights.

The site, sold by the Lightstone Group, encompasses 112, 114, 116 and 118 Fulton Street on the corner of Dutch Street. Lightstone, which is led by Daved Lichenstein, bought the property and development rights from surrounding parcels in 2012 for $63 million.

This is the second development site in Manhattan for Carmel. The California-based company is also part of a joint venture that is building a tower at 325 Lexington Avenue. [Crain’s] — Claire Moses

    Too bad the site is unbuildable- it has a street widening easement running right through it. DOT would be crazy not to enforce it. See DOF Tax map.

    @Knifecatcher – the developer received a waiver from the City, DOT included. This is all publicly available information.
