Tudor City residents fight Solow’s plans

April 24, 2008 09:37AM

The residents of 5 Tudor City Place have announced a lawsuit against the City Planning Commission to stop Sheldon Solow’s $4 billion development of the former Con Edison site. The suit alleges that in approving Solow’s plans, the City Council and Planning Commission ignored the wishes of the local community board, which expressed fears that the project will cause noise and pollution during construction and overshadow Tudor City once it is built. Solow’s plans call for 3,000 apartments, 1 million square feet of commercial space and 69,000 square feet of retail on First Avenue, between 35th and 41st streets.
