Re: ‘Hudson Square North’ Rezoning C 070575 ZMM
Dear Chair Burden:
I write to strongly oppose the proposed ‘Hudson Square North’ rezoning and to urge the City Planning Commission to reject this application.
This rezoning is unneeded and unwanted by the overwhelming majority of the affected community. It is being driven by a single developer, and yet it could have a profound impact upon a much wider area. It will allow and encourage larger scale development in close proximity to the Greenwich Village Historic District and will tax services and infrastructure. It will also destroy the balance of uses in the area which many currently find quite pleasant and will force out many existing businesses and jobs.
Additionally, it must be noted that while the community has no interest in seeing this rezoning move forward, the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation and many other community groups have called for a desperately-needed rezoning of the M1-6 zone directly to the south. That zone allows 45-story buildings such as the Trump SoHo Condo-Hotel, and we are seeing more and more such inappropriate development in that area. For the City Planning Commission to allow this developer-driven rezoning to go through while doing nothing about a much-needed community-requested rezoning of the area just to the south would be extremely disappointing and inappropriate.
I therefore urge you to reject the proposed ‘Hudson Square North’ rezoning and work with community groups like the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation to finally advance a much needed downzoning of the M1-6 zone directly south of this site.
