On Tuesday, April 9th, at 11:15 am, Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer, City Council Member Helen Rosenthal and community advocates will speak at a rally at 200 Amsterdam Avenue to convince the Department of Buildings (DOB) to rescind the building permit and halt the construction of the 51-story, 668-foot residential tower being built there. This follows two court actions, the first questioning the legality of the zoning lot, and the second, denying a temporary restraining order, allowing the developer to continue to build.
Brewer recently sent a letter to the DOB urging the agency to “rescind the permits,” stating that “construction should not continue while there is still a viable challenge to this building.”
Date of Rally: Tuesday, April 9th
Time: 11:15 am
Place: 200 Amsterdam Avenue, at 69th Street
