In place of this block-through compound, the project will create 14 residential units, either rentals or condominiums, according to a plan exam application filed yesterday. Flatiron District-based Barry Rice Architects was tapped to serve as architect of record, BuzzBuzzHome reported. The developer paid $7.5 million for the land in October.
