The developer paid $68.5 million for the site, which housed a six-story, 54,000-square-foot mixed-use office and retail property, in October, as The Real Deal reported. The new 19-story building would hold 5,230 square feet of ground-floor retail and apartments averaging 1,600 square feet. The sole penthouse unit would occupy the top two floors.
