The Real Deal reports that the Taystee Bakery site in West Harlem is one step closer to the estimated groundbreaking set for summer 2013. Janus Partners LLC and Monadnock Construction formed Taystee Create LLC and closed on the deal last week that sold off the site located between 125th and 126th by Amsterdam Avenue for $3.4 million.
