^^ Oh right, thanks. It seems like the NIMBYs are getting their way in that case though, hopefully the project doesn't get downsized

This tower is cool too BTW

Yeah, they can't cancel it outright at this point. There are two types of approvals that City Planning can do, one of them being a full ULURP process, which is about 7 months. A major difference between the two processes is that the City Council gets a say in the longer approval. That's where the local council member can try to sabotage any proposal, or twist it more to his or her liking. That's what all of these court battles have been about.

Imagine if the whole city had to go through ULURP...

Nothing would get done.

This was also part of the LES towers dealt a blow by the court.

Via the hack judge:

"“If this court were to endorse the city respondents’ interpretation, it would be rendering the language ‘by special permit or otherwise’ completely meaningless,” Engoron wrote in nullifying the project’s approvals."

247 Cherry thread has the full scoop.

Vomit inducing sentences below:

Quote:
“This is an amazing victory and it comes on the tails of victories across the city,” Tony Quey Lin, a plaintiff in the lawsuit who lives on the same block as the proposed towers, said in a statement. “The people are taking the city to court, and we are winning.”

This one might have good odds with the recent ruling.
