An amphitheater will be located near the back, and federal funds have been allotted for the park’s 13th Street pedestrian bridge. Construction is expected to begin in 2016.
World Wide Group has placed an assemblage of buildings, spanning 143-161 East 60th Street, in Midtown East, on the market as a development site for what is being valued north of $300 million, according to Crain’s Business.
