Now that SPURA is finally on its way to being developed, another area once designated by the city for renewal may be following suit. The Clinton Urban Renewal Area, a six-block area in the West 50s between 10th and 11th avenues, was established in 1969, but little progress has been made there since. Now that might be about to change as developers Taconic Investment Partners and Ritterman Capital, along with the Clinton Housing Development Corporation, are seeking rezoning that would allow them to construct three new buildings containing a total of 210 affordable units and 324 market rate units. The project has already garnered the support of Community Board 4, and will now have to get approval from Borough President Gale Brewer, City Council, and Mayor de Blasio.
