CWCapital is adding new apartments to Stuyvesant Town. The units — which will be a mix of studio and two and three-bedrooms — are being constructed on the site of a former management office on Avenue C.

In all, 11 new apartments will be built, a few with terraces overlooking Avenue C, according to sources. Terraces and studios are both something new for Stuy Town. A spokesperson for CWCapital declined to comment on the apartments or the rents for the units.

The office space on Avenue C was destroyed during Hurricane Sandy. Before that, the space had been apartments, according to Council Member Dan Garodnick.

Garodnick — who has been a key player in the development’s future — said he is monitoring the apartment development “to make sure the rents for the units are in compliance with the law.”

CWCapital, the financial services giant that holds the keys to Stuy Town, last month agreed to extend a deadline on talks to keep the apartment complex affordable.

While no set plan has come out of that yet, Garodnick told T&V that information is still being exchanged and he’s been in “close contact with the de Blasio administration and CWCapital. The tenants are part of this process.”
