On Friday The Real Deal reported that the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corp had canned PA Associates, which was supposed to develop Admiral’s Row, after the firm’s founder was accused of “funneling $472,500 in bribes to State Senator Carl Kruger.” A Navy Yard spokesperson and Councilwoman Letitia James both said the project would still move forward, albeit with a different, unspecified developer. In other Kruger fallout news, The Post reported that a shopping complex in Mill Basin that Forest City Ratner is developing was held up for three years by the state senator because Kruger didn’t want the city to begin a public review on a non-FCR section of the site “and [FCR] was concerned that segmenting the project could hurt its plans, sources said.” Kruger and Bruce Bender, a vice president for government relations at FCR, “are longtime allies,” according to the article, though neither Bender or FCR were charged in the Kruger corruption suit.

286 Hicks Street GMAP
When 286 Hicks was a HOTD in July 2010, we said the house was a bit narrow but there wasn’t much to quibble with.

Average reader appraisal was $2,676,533. Entered into contract on 11/29/10; closed on 1/27/11; deed recorded on 2/7/2011.

4. PARK SLOPE $1,700,000
527 9th Street GMAP

5. WILLIAMSBURG $1,419,000
