The city is revoking the permits for the 220,000-square-foot mixed-use project at 808 Columbus Ave., between West 97th and 100th streets, known as the Park West Village. The developer, the Chetrit Group, is seeking to create three contiguous blocks of retail and to build a 30-story apartment building. The project previously has been criticized by neighbors and the president of Manhattan, Scott Stringer, for violating the building code, and it is at the center of a lawsuit filed on behalf of a resident group.
City Revokes Permits For Major Development
Reversing its previous position on the project, the buildings department is now saying the project's parking spaces and street curbs do not conform to the building code.
The developer now has 10 business days from the date of the letter, May 2, to address the two issues.
