CORD sent us an email reminding us that the public hearing at the Board of Standards and Appeals for Oliver House/360 Smith Street will be held on Wednesday, September 24 at 10 a.m.
History: After a Zoning Text Amendment was passed, construction was halted at 360 Smith because the plans (calling for a building 70 feet high) didn’t conform to the new zoning, and the foundation was only 20 percent complete, not enough for a gimme.
Now the developer is appealing to the Board of Standards and Appeals to try to slide in under the old zoning.
The public can speak and present evidence. Generally, three minutes are allotted for each speaker. For specific guidance regarding comments, submissions, etc, contact Toni Matias 212-788-8752.
CORD still frets that Councilman Bill de Blasio will be a no-show.
