LANDMARK WEST! and neighbors have filed our Department of Buildings Zoning Challenge against the CENTRAL dARK Tower,  a proposed 39-story, 775-foot tall tower which includes 215-feet (equivalent to 21 residential stories!) of void space planned for 36 West 66th Street, (aka 50 West 66th Street) originally filed as a 25-story structure.

As of September 9th, 2018 the Department of Buildings has 75 days to respond to our challenge.

There’s a tough road ahead, and LW! will continue building a war chest to stay nimble, recruit expert assistance, and fight this project on all cylinders.
