Tonight at CB3: An introduction to the Kushner Companies

Via the CB3 website... and sorry for the late notice — I was unaware of the meeting...

Land Use, Zoning, Public & Private Housing Committee
Wednesday, April 17 at 6:30 pm. Seward Park Extension - 56 Essex Street (btwn Grand & Broome Sts)

3. Kushner East Village properties: introduction

We don't exactly know exactly what will transpire tonight... In recent months, The Kushner Companies have bought up 28-29 or so East Village walk-up buildings... One resident put up a meeting notice in her building... which a Kushner employee promptly tore down... (the notice, not the building).

Previously on EV Grieve:
Report: Jared Kushner paid $49 million for 7 more Ben Shaoul-owned properties in the East Village

More about Jared Kushner's East Village buying spree

Hotel Toshi takes over 325 E. 10th St.

Soon, we will all be writing our rent checks to Jared Kushner

That meeting was bullshit

Well, we did learn that they intend to construct extensions on their buildings.

EV Grieve said...

Jeez, of course.

Did they say how many buildings might get extensions?

Jill said...

They said they will build when they see fit. The committee member who asked about it responded, "we'll see you in court then," which is perfect since historically that's how most landlords end every conversation with me.

My secret robot word on this post is whichcum..
