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.”

Along with work on the old Stuyvesant Town management office to turn it into the new home for daycare center The Manhattan Kids Club, CWCapital’s also been building new apartments in the Avenue C building that was badly damaged by Hurricane Sandy, and patios are also currently being built. A spokesperson for CWCapital confirmed that the patios were currently under construction but said more details wouldn’t be revealed until they’re completed. Demolition work has also been getting done to install air conditioners under the windows rather than in them, which should provide better views. According to CWCapital spokesperson Brian Moriarty, the tenants in those apartments will pay the same A.C. surcharges as other tenants.
