The city recently announced it would not move forward with the “Uptown New York” project in East Harlem. Set to rise on mostly city-owned land running from 125th to 127th streets and Second and Third avenues, the project would’ve included a 700,000-square-foot commercial development, 1,500 housing units, 1,000 parking spaces, and an expansion of a MTA bus storage facility. Uptown New York faced vociferous opposition from residents and local leaders. more [NYDN]
