Wednesday night's CB3 Land Use, Zoning, Public & Private Housing Committee meeting.
The Board of Standards and Appeals (BSA) had previously ruled that landlord Ben Shaoul needs to remove the 6th and 7th floors. However, his attorneys are requesting that the city grant a zoning variance to "permit the constructed enlargement, minus the penthouse, to remain."
And how did this go? A tenant reported that "the landlord pulled out of the CB3 hearing at the last minute. They have re-scheduled it for next month."
In 2008, the BSA decreed that the additions were illegal and should be removed.
