Landmark West and neighbors have filed an official challenge against a proposed 775-foot tall development on West 66th street near Central Park that would be the tallest building on the Upper West Side. The building is inconsistent with the city’s zoning requirements, according to urban planner George Janes, who also worked on an ultimately unsuccessful zoning challenge to a building at 200 Amsterdam Avenue (69th Street). The full text of the challenge is here.
Extell Development did not respond to a request for comment on the challenge.
They’re also holding a community forum on Thursday at 6:30pm at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, on West 65th Street at Central Park West.
