The neighbors were right: New boutique hotel The Nolitan at the corner of Kenmare and Elizabeth Streets is too tall, the DOB has ruled. The zoning limits building heights to 8 floors (85 feet), but the Grzywinski+Pons-designed hotel pulled a Scarano and tried to pass off an extra level as a "mezzanine." The hotel has been wracking up complaints, causing the DOB to issue a stop work order and audit the sucker. The owners can appeal to the developer-friendly Board of Standards & Appeals, which in theory could force them to tear down the offending parts. [Downtown Express; previously]
