WESTSIDER LAWSUIT RESCHEDULED
Two hearings have been scheduled in the lawsuit against the Columbus Village development near Park West Village after a State Supreme Court hearing on Sept. 10. An injunction hearing with the State Supreme Court was rescheduled for Oct. 15 since the judge was absent this past week, while a zoning appeal hearing with the Board of Standards and Appeals, which had previously declined to hear the case, will now take place on Oct. 28. Both community residents and elected officials turned up to support the lawsuit, which was originally filed by the group Westsiders for Public Participation and was recently amended and refiled. Residents of Park West Village are worried that the buildings at Columbus Village, 808 Columbus Ave. between West 100th and 97th streets, are not structurally sound and want a say in the development process. As of now, Columbus Village is set to have four 29-story residential buildings and 320,000 square feet of retail space.
