Madonna's House Under Wraps, West Village Rezoning in the Works

New, 4 comments

UPPER EAST SIDE?It looks like renovations to Madonna's $32 mansion at 152 East 81st Street are well underway. A tipster shoots us the above photo, showing that the 57-footer is hidden behind serious scaffolding action. He adds: "A big steel I-beam being delivered. Support the weight of dancers?" Could be. There are no finicky co-op neighbors to piss off with a chorus line. [CurbedWire Inbox]

WEST VILLAGE?For over a year and a half the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation has been pushing for a rezone in a small swath of the Far West Village still open to "oversize" commercial development (like the Inn on Perry Street). Now, GVSHP's Andrew Berman writes, "I am pleased to let you know that the City has now finally agreed to rezone this area of the Far West Village to the zoning district suggested by GVSHP and community groups. This will do a much better job of protecting the character of the neighborhood and preventing out-of-scale commercial development. Public hearings will be scheduled on the proposed zoning change in the coming weeks, and we will be sure to let you know when those are." [GVSHP]
