LONDON, January 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

London-based investor Bhanu Choudhrie has been at the heart of efforts to secure a historic development in New York City.

Mr Choudhrie, executive director of C&C Alpha Group, based in Victoria, was behind the founding of Megalith Capital Management which is one of two firms carrying out the development in Manhattan.

The other partner is Imperial Development Group. The partnership has been granted approval from the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission for its development of a luxury condominium building located at 6 Cortlandt Alley in Tribeca.

"This is an important project in an historic area of one of the world's leading cities," Mr Choudhrie said. "We are delighted to be involved with it."

"We are excited about the opportunity to participate in the rapid transformation of the Broadway corridor in eastern Tribeca," said Vishal Arora of Megalith. "Eastern Tribeca has become one of the most desirable areas in lower Manhattan."  

The developer will convert one of east Tribeca's oldest landmarked buildings into five luxury loft condominiums.  The project will be a unique offering that combines amenities sought after by discerning Tribeca buyers while retaining the exclusivity of a five unit building.

"We are enthusiastic to deliver authentic 3 and 4 bedroom luxury floor-through and penthouse units that include substantial outdoor space", said Ryan Kaplan of Imperial. "The entrance on Cortlandt Alley will provide homeowners privacy reminiscent of a London mews or a West Village side street."

Construction and sales are expected to commence in the spring.  Marketing for the project is being handled by Stribling & Associates.
