NorthPoint celebrates kickoff of $63M Power & Light project

Mayor Sly James wanted to know whether it was a "groundbreaking" or a "marble-cracking" ceremony.

Either way, the Wednesday afternoon ceremonies at the historic Power & LIght Building, 106 W. 14th St., represented the official, long-awaited start of the historic building's transformation.

Nathaniel Hagedorn, CEO of NorthPoint Development, said his firm's $63 million redevelopment project will include 258 luxury apartment units that will "blow everything else away in the market."
