Getty Station can stay: CB 12
CB 12, however, did not look kindly on an application from a Springfield Gardens landowner to a build a two-family home at 117-57 142nd Place. that would not have complied with building codes.
A lawyer speaking on behalf of the lot owner, Hamid Kavian, told the board that Kavian wanted to build a 15-foot-wide house on the 22-foot lot, meaning there would be a 3.5 foot setback on each side of the home. The zoning in the area, however, calls for 5-foot setbacks, which the lawyer said would only allow Kavian to build a 12-foot-wide home.
"It wouldn't be financially feasible to build to zoning code," the lawyer said.
Well then why did he buy it? Oh that's right, BSA will let him build whatever he wants to build. He must know that.
