Appointed by Mayor Bill de Blasio to the helm of the city agency in 2014, Srinivasan has chaired an 11-member group and overseen 3,800 building designations for historic protections.

It’s been an intense, challenging, and incredibly rewarding experience, she said in a statement, adding that she intends to do more hands-on project-based work in in the private sector.

Crain s first reported the news Thursday.

Srinivasan, an architect by trade, chaired the Board of Standards and Appeals for 10 years before joining the commission. She joined the NYC Planning Department in 1990 where she worked on the master plan for Hudson Yards.

Huntington pulls contract with Bohemia-based architects over fees
The Huntington Town Board revoked the contract it had with Bohemia-based DCAK-MSA Architectural and Engineering PC — doing business as Savik and Murray — which had been hired to design the James D. Conte Community Center in Huntington Station. Town officials said the firm was charging excess fees and didn t advance the project beyond the conceptual phase. Patchogue-based BBS Architects, Landscape Architects and Engineers PC will take over the project, Newsday reported. In 2016, the town approved payment of $603,000 for Savik and Murray for the project and about half of that has already been paid out. Savik and Murray had apparently tacked fees onto that amount, forcing the final bill for the whole project up from the budgeted $10 million to a total of $15 million. The community center will feature a full-size basketball court and meeting rooms.  [Newsday]

Sears Holdings plans to close 80 more stores nationwide in March as it teeters on the brink of full liquidation上海千花社区 上海千花网交友.

TheGuarantors, a startup that insures New York上海贵族宝贝交流区 上海贵族宝贝论坛 renters who don’t meet landlord requirements, has closed on Series B funding.

The $15 million round was led by Global Founders Capital, bringing the company’s total fundraising to $27 million, TheGuarantors said in a statement. The company will use the funds to expand nationwide and launch a new product for the commercial real estate industry.

Global Founde上海千花社区 上海千花网交友rs Capital has previously invested in companies including Facebook and LinkedIn. Most of the Series A investors — including White Star Capital, Alven Capital, and Partech Ventures — also participated in the latest round, the company said. Silverstein Properties’ accelerator SilverTech Ventures is also an investor.

TheGuarantors is among companies — including Insurent — aiming to fill a gap in the rental market amid the city’s high prices. Most landlords only accept tenants with an annual income of at least 40 times the monthly rent and who have credit scores greater than 700. Those who can’t meet those requirements, and who don’t have their own guarantors, can turn to these companies instead.

TheGuarantors launched their residential lease guarantee business in 2016 and has since guaranteed more than $200 million in leas[……]
