Back in March of 2015, CB Developers, SK Development, and Ironstate Development acquired, for $25.2 million, the three five-story tenement buildings at 587-591 Third Avenue, located between East 38th and 39th streets in Murray Hill. Around that time, the developers filed applications for a 20-story, 74-unit mixed-use building at the site.
