Proposed dorm for former 35 Cooper Square looks to be 4 floors taller
Nearly two years ago, the historic, circa-1825 building at 35 Cooper Square was quickly demolished.
As we first reported last Aug. 21, developer Arun Bhatia filed paperwork for a 9-story dorm for an unspecified school in this space.
The proposed plans called for a 9-story dormitory with 43 rooms ... plus retail on the ground floor. In total, the building would be nearly 35,000 square feet (at a height of 117 feet).
And that was that. The plans continued to be "pending" with the DOB.
Until this week, when subsequent paperwork filed with the DOB yesterday show a 13-story dorm in this space instead...
Perhaps if they wait a little longer they can get it up to 18 floors.
Previously on EV Grieve:
Something 28,998 square feet or so coming to Cooper Square (and goodbye Cooper 35 Asian Pub?)
