CBS New York Council Stopped Midtown Tower Project At Behest Of Wealthy Neighbors, Developer Claims by Jessica Borga
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Construction on upscale condominiumshas been stopped in its tracks on Manhattan’s east side.
New zoning rules now say the controversial tower is too tall.
It’s known as Sutton 58 — the site of a 62-story condo building under construction.
Last Thursday, a City Council vote to limit the construction of tall towers on side streets in the area, led to a stop-work order.
“New Yorkers are sick and tired of out-of-control, out-of-scale overdevelopment, and for so very long, no one would stand up for real estate,” City Councilman Ben Kallos (D-5th) said.
