BHA Asks Court to Halt Imminent Start to Pier 6 Construction

July 3

On June 28th the Pier 6 developers sent a written notice to the BHA’s counsel, Jenner & Block LLP, reporting their intention to start construction of the two Pier 6 towers on or after July 19th.  Their notice was sent in accordance with an earlier  stipulation between the BHA and the Park’s Respondents under which the developers committed to not start construction without providing 3 weeks’ notice.

July 19th falls one day after the next, and likely final, scheduled court appearance before NYS Supreme Court Justice Lucy Billings on July 18th. THIS JULY 18th HEARING HAS BEEN POSTPONED TO AUGUST 4th, but the judge has agreed to hear an argument on our emergency TRO request on July 20th.Read More…
