The wharf property between West 44th and West 47th Streets has bed acquired by the City and 1,000-foot pier at the foot of West 46th Street is mise cent. completed.

In order to continue the development of the 1,000-foot piers in this section whico the City has committed itself to, it is necessary to acquire the remainder * privately owned wharf property between West 43d Street and West 51st Street.

By resolution adopted by the Board of Estimate ond Apportionment on July 1916 (Cal. No. 173), the Board fixed July 27, 1916, as a date for a hearing to change the lines and grades of 12th Avenue between West 42d Street and West 51st ST** Borough of Manhattan. At the same meeting, the Board (Cal. No. 175), fixed a 27, 1916, as a date for a hearing for the institution of condemnation proceeding acquire title to the real property acquired for the opening of 12th Avenue beinet West 42d Street and West 51st Street.

At the adjourned hearing held on July 27, 1916, the Board of Estimate z! Apportionment fixed the lines and established the grades of 12th Avenue betwo West 420 Street and West 51st Street. The Board also at the same meeting advice resolutions (1) instituting condemnation proceedings for the acquisition of the print for the physical opening of 12th Avenue between West 42d Street and West 51st Speak (2) that the compensation to be made to the owners of the property to be acquire shall be ascertained and determined by the Supreme Court without a jury (31 (15poration Counsel was requested to make application to a special term of the Suprem Court to have the compensation which should be made to the respective owners. the property proposed to be taken, ascertained and determined by the Supreme i on? without a jury.

The Board of Estimate and Apportionment having determined to acquire le Avenue between West 42d and West 51st Streets, therefore, in order to elimina? consequential damages and that the City may receive the benefit and that one for ceeding may reflect on the other, in my opinion, as recommended by the Commissie of Docks the proceeding for the acquisition of 12th Avenue and the proceeding *** the wharf property between West 43d and West 51st Streets should be conducted 3 the same time, also the two proceedings, if possible, should be conducted by the sa Justice of the Supreme Court.
