☞ REVIVE: CB10 General Board Meeting Tonight

Wednesday, September, 1st, 6:00 PM at the Adam Clayton Powell State Office Building, 163 West 125th Street, 2nd Floor Art Gallery. The CB10 Land Use Committee must have approved the ADC proposal for the 8-story, 60-unit affordable housing development at the west 123rd Street parking lot, between ACP/7th and FDB/8th Avenue, since the General Board will have the official public hearing on the proposal tonight with the community at large. The block association has been trying to get a more contextual option to fit into this residential, brownstone side street and has been lobbying against the project in the past: LINK. So if your are for or against the project, show up and raise your voice on the issue at hand.


  1. Thanks for posting this. I'd encourage everyone to attend..

    Whatever your views on the 'contextual' issues of an 8 story-mid block building, there are serious issues with this proposed development.

    Most worryingly, they propose to move the occupants of the Francis Ennis houses on 124th into the new development, leaving those (already badly maintained) houses vacant for an unspecified number of years. This could significantly blight 124th between ACP and FDB. They then propose (without timeframe or details) additional development on 124th...

    Some basic conditions should be imposed to ensure that the neighborhood isn't left in a poor state of repair.

  2. What a bad situation. ADC is like Harlem mafia.

    How did everything work out?

  3. Pete, not too good by the looks of things (if you live on 12rd):

  4. Piece on this in today's News. Maybe yesterday's.

    Shame it's going to be so tall.
