So, yesterday we wondered what was going on with the big Williamsburg Waterfront development known as The Edge. Actually, it turns out that the big property along Kent Avenue might be for sale for $210 million. A tipster directs us to this Craigslist ad, which says, in part:
1st Block - approximately 113,398 sq. ft. of land upland of existing bulkhead, in addition the parcel also includes approximately 84,000 sq. ft. of land under water. 2nd Block- approximately 123,506 sq. ft. of land upland of existing bulkhead, in addition the parcel also include approximately 80,000 sq. ft. of land under water of which approximately 48,000 sq. ft. above the L train tunnel (which is approx. 80 feet below grade) is subject of a permanent easement to the City Of New York.
With also an additional Air Right for street and three piers adjoining the site. Clean Environmental....Asking $210,000,000 (Estimate: $166 per sq.ft. buildable for Residential/Retail and $136 per sq.ft. for Affordable Housing Buildable.)
It certainly exactly matches the location of the property where The Edge is supposed to go.
