CurbedWire: MeatBoard Update, Little Chitaly Marches On

MEATPACKINGTime for a MeatBoard update from the now historic MePa, where Andrew Berman informs us:

The lower of the two billboards is not yet up because our allegation that the sign frame is angled at less than the required 90 degrees turned out to be true. Presumably they are trying to find a way to remedy it, though I do not know how. DOB is still reviewing our allegations regarding the other two violations; additionally, neighboring businesses and community groups have hired a building code expert to review the plan for the sign and the zoning code independently, since we don't want to leave the determination of what is or is not legal here solely to Michael Achenbaum or DOB. There should be more news by next week; we're planning our next action to call attention to the Hotel's refusal to take down the signs.Your move, Ganservoort. [CurbedWire Inbox]

LITTLE CHITALYMore tipster gossip from Manhattan's hottest and most futuristic neighborhood: "Blesso Properties is planning a 24 unit loft conversion right around the corner from the above mentioned new hot neighborhood." Who knows more about this delightful undertaking (right)? [CurbedWire Inbox]

EAST VILLAGEAn reader is irate over the stalled progress at 62nd East 1st Street: "What the hell? After 7 1/2 months of demolition and construction, we've got a concrete-lined hole in the ground. They spend several months pouring the concrete, and several more weeks (starting every day at 7 a.m.) cutting holes into it with high-decibel saws. Now I hear there's no permit for the rest of the building. Any idea what gives?" [CurbedWire Inbox]
