Developer Buys on Sutton Place; Community Board Teens

New, 3 comments

SUTTON PLACE—Developer The Bauhouse Group announced today that it closed on three contiguous walkup apartment buildings (containing a total of 22 apartments), 428, 430, and 432 East 58th Street, for $32 million. "Sutton Place is one of the most quiet and historic neighborhoods in Manhattan, and we're looking forward to being a property owner in the neighborhood," said Joseph Beninati, a managing member of the company. Right. We're sure that The Bauhouse Group's particular brand of "property ownership" (which typically involves the construction of luxury condominiums) will do wonders for all the "quiet."

COMMUNITY BOARDS—Did you know that 16-year-olds are allowed to be on community boards? Apparently, they are not only allowed but coveted, as we learned from a press release about an event happening right now (sorry teens, you missed it) wherein Borough President Gale Brewer is trying to recruit 16- and 17-year-olds for some of the 300 open community board seats. Kids these days! Always holding developers' feet to the fire in order to preserve the architectural character of their neighborhoods! [CurbedWire Inbox]
