Lexington Square Partners has agreed to buy the superblock site for $12.2 million, though the developer is receiving credits for all but $2.85 million of that price, the agenda said.
The development, delayed by legal challenges and a floundering economy, would be bounded roughly by Lexington, Howard and Fayette streets and Park Avenue. When complete, it is expected to have about 300 apartments and a parking structure with space for 650 vehicles plus more than 200,000 square feet for retail.
The board is also being asked to authorize a $22.1 million tax break for Lexington Square, which was approved by the City Council earlier this month.
