TF Cornerstone received approval yesterday from the City Council’s Committee on Land Use to proceed with its 1.9-acre Hell’s Kitchen development after agreeing to add a public preschool.

The developer said it would allot an extra 10,000 square feet of moderate-income housing, for families earning about $150,000 in annual income. The 1,025-unit rental project at 606 West 57th Street would hold 220 affordable units, rather than 205 as initially planned.

The deal, which Council member Helen Rosenthal made with the developer, calls for a pre-Kindergarten program as well as a smaller parking garage, Capital New York reported. The City Planning Commission, Community Board 4 and the Manhattan Borough President’s Office have signed off. But TF Cornerstone’s request for a zoning change in order to build the twin 28-story structures – and a 14-story cube above them — has yet to be officially approved by the city.
