Anthony Borelli, vice president of planning and development at Edison Properties, may be on track to secure an appointment to the Board of Standards and Appeals.
The de Blasio administration is zeroing in on Borelli to lead the board of the land-use body, which grants exemptions from zoning code for individual properties and years appeals of denials from the Department of Buildings and other city agencies. Borelli formerly served as planning and land use director for the borough of Manhattan under Scott Stringer, now city comptroller. He was district manager of Manhattan’s Community Board 4. [more]
Edison Properties is paving the way for a development project near the High Line by replacing thousands of pounds of contaminated soil at the site.
The full-block site, located between West 17th and 18th streets from 10th to 11th avenues, was once home to a gas processing plant which released industrial byproducts into the soil below. HLP Properties, a division of Edison, began work last week to replace the soil, and hopes to build a mixed-use structure at the site, according to HLP executive Anthony Borelli. [more]
Edison Properties will build a residential development and a public park on a site that is currently a parking lot in Hudson Square if a zoning proposal goes through, DNAinfo reported.
The lot Edison owns, between Dominick and Spring streets and Varick and Hudson streets, could become Dominick Street Park and a 230-unit residential tower at 270 Spring Street. The tower would have ground-floor retail and 46 of the units would be affordable housing. [more]
The Juliet Supperclub, a West Chelsea haunt known for its celebrity clientele and the two murders that occurred there in recent months, opted to withdraw a lawsuit today that was seeking to thwart eviction proceedings, according to court documents obtained by The Real Deal.
Since November, the club owner has been fighting with its landlord, an entity of the Newark, N.J.-based Edison Properties, over whether the venue is a supperclub or a nightclub. [more]
A New York state judge could decide as early as Thursday whether the Juliet Supperclub, a West Chelsea hotspot popular with celebrities, must close its doors. Its landlord is trying to evict the club after two murders were committed on the premises in recent months.
A man was stabbed to death outside the club, at 539 West 21st Street between 10th and 11th avenues, in September, although a Juliet spokesperson said at the time that the victim was not a patron. In late November, a gunman opened fire inside the venue, killing one man and wounding at least two others, according to news reports. [more]

Budget cuts this summer have left a sleek glass tower proposed for the Fashion Institute of Technology’s Chelsea campus in limbo, and now the school is hoping the project will be saved by a private donor.
According to the Architect’s Newspaper, the state awarded the State University of New York school located between Seventh and Eighth avenues at 27th and 28th streets, half of the $148 million needed to complete the SHoP Architects-designed project in 2003. (SHoP is also the firm behind the Barclays Center in Atlantic Yards.) The rest, it said, would need to come from local funding within 10 years. In 2006, the city contributed $2 million to the project, prompting the state to match it, so the architects could finalize the design. … [more]
Members of a Chelsea community board have unanimously voted in favor of a plan to re-zone the blocks surrounding the Fashion Institute of Technology at Seventh Avenue and West 27th Street, according to DNAinfo, despite concerns that new zoning conditions might mark an end for existing commercial and office spaces in the area.
The new designation, to span West 28th, 29th and 30th streets between Seventh and Eighth avenues, would loosen regulations for new residential units. Developers would be allowed to turn any building smaller than 50,000 square feet into residential space. … [more]
Edison Properties has made it known why it was leading the city’s drive to land a new zoning designation for the old Fur District just south of Penn Station. The developer plans to build a 407-unit residential tower at 249 West 28th Street, according to the Observer. As The Real Deal previously reported, City Planning Commissioner Amanda Burden wants to create a new designation and apply it to the area to encourage growth and development around the neighborhood’s Class B and C office space. … [more]
