Variance hearing for 122 Greenwich Avenue set for October 17
The developers of 122 Greenwich Avenue, the undulating glass apartment building planned for the corner of Greenwich Avenue, 13th Street, and 8th Avenue, will appear before the Board of Standards and Appeals on October 17th to request a variance to allow them to make the planned development slightly larger and taller than the zoning for the site allows. GVSHP opposed the design for the building as woefully inappropriate for the Greenwich Village Historic District (CLICK HERE for testimony), and has opposed the variance as an inappropriate increase in the size and height of an unwanted design, lacking in any rationale or justification.
