CapRock Appointed Receiver of site of former New City YMCA

(Crain’s, September 22, 2011) – Receiver named for former New City Y site – CapRock, a Chicago-based real estate firm, said it has been appointed the receiver for the site of the former New City YMCA on the near North Side. A joint venture between Chicago-based Structured Development LLC and Wilton, Conn.-based Commonfund had planned a mixed-use project with 490 apartments and about 450,000 square feet of retail space but got hit last year with a foreclosure suit on the site at the corner of Clybourn Avenue and Halsted Street. Structured is working to pay off the loan and bring in new partners, including former General Growth Properties Inc. CEO John Bucksbaum, to replace Commonfund but has yet to finalize a deal. A Structured executive was not immediately available Thursday.
