Madison Equities and Property Markets Group are seeking a variance to build an 18-story condominium building on a former car wash plot in Soho, DNAinfo reported.

The developers have filed with the Board of Standards and Appeals and will make their case to Community Board 2 tomorrow because the site is zoned industrial, DNAinfo said.

The proposed mixed-use development would feature four townhouses and retail at the triangular plot at the corner of Broome Street and Sixth Avenue.

Andrew Berman, executive director of the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation, told DNAinfo that 18 stories was too high.

“We believe that if this development is to be allowed a variance for residential development at this location, it should be at the size and density which is allowed for residential development in the surrounding area,” Berman said in a statement. [DNAinfo]-Guelda Voien
