Stalled Burg Site Sells, Restart Coming?


The troubled project at 50 North 1st Street recently sold for $10.5 million, which seems to back up rumors Curbed heard a couple weeks ago that the condo project was purchased by a new developer who’s going to finish it. The development has been on ice since there was a construction accident at the site in mid-2009. The original plans called for 41 units; it’s unclear from public records who the new owner is. It appears that the DOB still has a stop work order in effect.
