REVIVE: RESIDENTS OPPOSE LENOX TERRACE INFILL
Over 78 percent of resident now oppose the addition of six new 28-story towers that would "infill" the land surrounding the existing towers and also include a large commercial retail component on the Avenue side of the street. A development of this scale would require changes in the current R7-2 residential zoning to C6-2 commercial zoning which is now only found on 125th Street in Central Harlem. Some of the concerns also include how the neighborhood infrastructure would support an influx of 1,100 new units in a 3 block radius. For any of this to happen, The Department of City Planning, Community Board 10, the Manhattan Borough President, City Council and the Mayor would have to sign off on the zoning issue.
Check out our past post for previous versions of the infill plans which are probably not so current now but gives an idea of the direction the developers are going for: LINK
