LES Landlord Trashes DOB, Rezoning

New, 1 comment

Landlord/broker Sion Misrahi, ringmaster of the circus known as the Lower East Side, takes aim at both the Department of Buildings and the recent LES rezoning in an interview with LES blog The Lo-Down. The new zoning restrictions have "effectively killed all development in this neighborhood," he says, and what remains is being put through the ringer by a DOB that is now "scared to death" and "looking at the buildings that are already up, to hit them with fines and penalties in order to support their bureaucracy." He's slinging heat! But is he just looking for scapegoats for the whole Orchard Street Hell Building shitshow? [The Lo-Down via TRD; previously]
