A charity organization has taken a developer to federal court to stop it from building 200 luxury apartments next to its campus on Old Orchard Street in North Castle. St. Christopher’s Inc., which provides services for autistic teens, originally agreed to sell 22 acres of land to JMF Properties LLC of Whippany, New Jersey with the understanding, it claims, that the developer would build 35 apartments for the development called the Vue. That number has substantially increased, with St. Christopher claiming the original contract was amended without their attorney first looking at it, Westchester Business Journal reported. [WBJ]
