Caledonia's Big Fancy Door

New, 7 comments

Luxuryloft is reporting that the Caledonia just ended talks with the city regarding their door that opens directly onto the High Line after the Parks Department wanted to charge them $800,000 a year. A broker/resident of the Caledonia says “The building always knew it would have to pay a fee to the Park’s Department for this access point: the building built and provided a bathroom and elevator that the City has an easement to access. But asking for $ 800,000.00 a year for the use of a door is excessive and out of touch with reality. It is this form of New York-style government abuse that causes people and companies to head out of state.” It seems excessive to charge $800,000, but what we're more curious about is how the Parks department even reached such an arbitrary number.
