Bucksbaum launches development firm
...New City, scheduled to open in the fall of the year following, will offer 370,000 square feet of retail plus an 80,000-square-foot Mariano’s Fresh Market gourmet supermarket and a 16-story apartment tower
. Chicago development firm Structured Development is partner on that project. Bucksbaum’s investment and retail expertise along with a $31 million loan from JPMorgan Chase has gotten the stalled project moving again, with construction due to start later this year.
