Perhaps 84 Third Ave. will have four extra floors?

Real-estate blogger Andrew Fine rounds up some facts and figures about the sun-blocking under-construction 84 Third Ave., the retail-residential combo coming to the space last held by Nevada Smiths and Yummy House.

The DOB OK'd the Karl Fischer-designed 94-unit, 9-story building with 72,000 square feet of residential, 9,500 square feet of commercial and 327 square feet (!) of "community space."

One mystery: He notes that the rendering that has made the rounds is actually 13 stories, a mere four over what the city approved.

In addition, two workers on the site told Fine that the building would be 13 stories. Maybe they thought no one would notice?

Bloomberg or not, I don't think sneaking 4 extra stories on top is gonna go over too well at DOB.

Very soon we will lose all our daylight and fresh air and the village will morph into midtown if people dont start taking a real stand against this crap.
Bloomberg already wants us to live like canned sardines and proudly shared that fact in a press conference for godssake.

327 feet of community space? What is it, a public toilet? - that would be a good use of community space

Plans re now on file for 12 story building. As usual, developers just lie, cheat and steal their way through the DOB.
