Upper East Side Patch,NYC Stop Work Order Issued on Site of Planned 950-Foot Upper East Side Tower by Brenden Krisel
The stop work order was issued following an audit request from City Councilman Ben Kallos, the Wall Street Journal reported. Kallos told the Journal that the developers had requested an application to stabilize 426 East 58th Street in order to complete demolition on the adjacent three-buildings.
The proposed 950-tower and other supertall developments have prompted Kallos to start a petition to "stop super-scrapers" and preserve the Upper East Side's neighborhood character. The petition has garnered nearly 400 signatures.
