^^ Oh right, thanks. It seems like the NIMBYs are getting their way in that case though, hopefully the project doesn't get downsized

This tower is cool too BTW

Yeah, they can't cancel it outright at this point. There are two types of approvals that City Planning can do, one of them being a full ULURP process, which is about 7 months. A major difference between the two processes is that the City Council gets a say in the longer approval. That's where the local council member can try to sabotage any proposal, or twist it more to his or her liking. That's what all of these court battles have been about.
NEW YORK. World's capital.

“Office buildings are our factories – whether for tech, creative or traditional industries we must continue to grow our modern factories to create new jobs,” said United States Senator Chuck Schumer.

Imagine if the whole city had to go through ULURP...

Nothing would get done.
