HEARING ON ST. VINCENT’S AND RUDIN LUXURY CONDO/ NEW HOSPITAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN: MONDAY, 2/25/8 @ 6:30PM.by You the Reader
As always, thanks to Andrew Berman of the GVSHP for keeping us informed.
More than 800 people came to the last hearing, sending a strong message that the current plan was NOT acceptable, and must be substantially changed, because:
it involved unnecessary and precedent-setting demolition of landmarked historic buildings,
the two very large new proposed buildings were totally out-of-scale for the neighborhood,
it involved an unacceptable upzoning and increase in density, and
there are alternatives for building a new hospital that are compatible with the character of our neighborhood.
As a result, the Landmarks Committee of the Community Board voted unanimously to recommend REJECTION of the current proposal. It is now critical that we convey our message again loud and clear at this second hearing, so the full Community Board adopts our recommendations. ATTEND AND TESTIFY AT THE HEARING ON THE 25th. Get there early to sign up to testify.
