The property was owned by Scottsdale, Arizona-based Alliance Residential Co. through Broadstone River House LLC. The Daily Record reported in 2016 that Alliance bought the property for the apartments for $6.5 million and planned to build a $34 million project. 

Block One said it is planning to upgrade the property. It hired Ironwood Design for landscape architecture and Dynamik Design for interiors, with construction planned to begin in late summer.

It said the upgrades will follow $11 million in redevelopment work completed by the previous owner and approved by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, following a failure of the seawall and bulkhead in 2020 that impacted the property’s three ground units, 10 upper-level units and underground push piers.
