West Village residents have hated the crap out of the Witkoff Group-developed 150 Charles Street condo building ever since plans first surfaced. In 2011, they produced an eleven-minute video titled "The Rape of the West Village," which they followed up with a lawsuit. Neither tactic did much, or anything, to impede the project's progress, however, as the building is basically just a steel frame at this point and already the entire building is sold out.
Now, one neighbor is making a last-ditch effort to halt the project in its tracks, telling the Post, "It's my fault I didn't get onto this sooner." Jean-Louis Bourgeois plans to file a suit against the developers claiming that the 95 parking spaces that will accompany 150 Charles violate the Clean Air Act. Guess it can't hurt.
