    Site of Demolished Clinton Hill Italianate Villa Sells as Development Property for $6.5 Million

    In Clinton Hill, after a number of twists and turns, a historic property that could not be saved has sold as a development site and will likely become apartments. Located just outside the Clinton Hill Historic District at 532 Clinton Avenue, the property sold for $6.5 million to 532 Clinton LLC earlier this month. The address of the LLC, which leads to a box at the Bay Ridge Mail Station located at 9728 3rd Avenue, appears to be shared with a company called EM Development, which has worked on small development projects in Kensington, Bath Beach and Carroll Gardens.
