I agree this proposal is highly questionable, but definitely not because of zoning.
You can build very tall towers north of Canal. There's a 700+ foot office proposal by Trinity Realty right around the corner.
South of Canal is another story. Not allowed under current zoning in most of Tribeca.
Would there be community outcry? Of course, but as-of-right would make it irrelevent. There would be no public review.
