Greenpoint's 55 Eckford Street has been an arrested development poster child ever since the debut of the Department of Buildings' stalled sites list, and there's still a stop work order hanging over the skeletal property. But a tipster writes in with some hints of movement behind the scenes: 55 Eckford was scheduled for a foreclosure auction yesterday. And not for the first time?PropertyShark shows that an October auction scheduled for the property was postponed. We gave the attorney's office a call to find out the auction results and were told yesterday's auction was canceled, but we're not sure what that means for the future of the property. Rumor in the neighborhood, according to our local tipster, "was that it sold last fall & would be built up to 11 stories," but there's no record of a sale. Anyone have additional intel? Let us know.
