As this photo shows, the gutting of Albee Square Mall, once legendary rapper Biz Markie’s ‘Home Sweet Home,’ is well under way in preparation for demolition of the 31-year-old structure. Developer Acadia Realty Trust and its partners plan a roughly 1.5 million-square-foot tower on the block, which could rise between 60 and 70 stories, said co-developer Paul Travis of Washington Square Partners. The project, called City Point, is designed by GreenbergFarrow. Demolition of the Albee Square garage was completed back in January. GMAP DOB
