There's a 14-story building planned for 180 Sixth Avenue, and its construction involves the purchase of air rights from a non-profit, God's Love We Deliver, at 166 Sixth Avenue. The non-profit has already received city permission to sell those air rights, but neighbors have just a few objections (and they've raised $3,400 for a land-use attorney, so they mean business). First, they say city restrictions on 166 Sixth Avenue's use mean the organization shouldn't be allowed to sell air rights. Second, they think construction at 180 Sixth Avenue would destabilize neighboring buildings and?the usual complaint?block views and light. [DNAinfo; previously]
