The Manhattan District Attorney is investigating the alleged employment of undocumented workers and payment of substandard wages at projects run by Atlantic Development. Peter Fine, founder of Atlantic, is also the producer of Broadway’s “In the Heights.” Sources told the New York Post that investigators have been asking laborers about Atlantic’s wages and hiring practices. The company, which uses many subcontractors, develops affordable and low-income housing. Prosecutors raided Atlantic Development’s office in April. The company’s Boricua Village project in the Melrose neighborhood of the Bronx opened several months ago.
