I just talked to Carl Halsan, a project manager with Halsan Fry who is developing a piece of the property at East 72nd Street and Portland Avenue (as part of a separate entity, 2010 Investments LLC).
They’re building a mini-storage site accessible by Portland Avenue. He said he was unaware of any homeless encampments on the property.
"It was my impression they were on the other properties," he said. "I was just out there a few days ago with a surveying crew and we didn’t see anyone."
