••• City Realty says that “construction has finally advanced” on 66-68 Reade: “the building’s longtime owner, Jean Hieber and the architects of Preservation Green L.L.C. are writing the 160-year-old building’s next chapter. With a design approved by the Landmarks Preservation Commission, in 2012, the structure is proposed to hold 5 large residential condos with two retail spaces below. […] A new 16-foot-high sixth floor will be setback from the streetwall —just out of view from passersby below on Reade.
