The rezoning project would double the size of the Central Harlem development by building five new apartment towers.
HARLEM, NY — Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer will not support a controversial project that would double the size of a Central Harlem apartment complex, the borough president announced this week.
Brewer voiced her opposition to the Olnick Organization's plan to expand Lenox Terrace by upzoning the development's multi-block site — bound by Lenox Avenue, Fifth Avenue, West 132nd Street and West 135th Street — and constructing five new 28-story, mixed-use towers. The borough president cited the proposal's scale and its lack of public investments as reasons for her opposition.
