rescheduled it at the last minute for another month.
A quick recap to a really long story: The Board of Standards and Appeals (BSA) had previously ruled that Shaoul needs to remove the 6th and 7th floors. However, his attorneys had requested that the city grant a zoning variance to "permit the constructed enlargement, minus the penthouse, to remain."
Now the Tenants Association of 515 East 5th Street, who has been fighting all this for years, passes along word of yet another delay to any resolution in the near future. Shaoul's attorneys have apparently filed an Article 78 petition to get the New York State Supreme Court to compel the BSA and DOB to reverse their decisions in the vesting case.
We'll report back to you when this is all resolved in 2023.
