Hotel Penn Deathwatch

New, 10 comments

15 Penn Plaza, Vornado's proposed Hotel Pennsylvania replacement, went before Community Board 5 last night. As the Observer tells it, the board voted 36-1 against the proposal and told Vornado to come back if it finds a tenant, without even giving the customary recommendations that might lead to a CB-developer compromise. Why the snub? Some board members were miffed that Vornado wanted to "double dip" by asking for more air rights and greater density. [NYO; previously]
