According to a draft scope of work released by the city’s planning department in October, the rezoning could eventually lead to 3,200 apartments being constructed across a 56-block area, with 800 of those deemed affordable.The draft scope also calls for removing current restrictions on retail use within the zoning area, and permitting some buildings with a floor-area ratio of 12, the largest currently allowed by the city.UPDATE: This piece was edited to add a statement from the Department of City Planning. Contact Orion Jones SK Development’s Scott Shnay and Ironstate’s Michael Barry (Google Maps, Scott Shnay via LinkedIn)UPDATED, Jan. 12 2020, 5:20 p.m.: On a corner of the Bowery that’s currently occupied by a one-story bar, the city envisioned a 110-unit residential building as part of its larger plans to rezone Soho and Noho.But the site’s owners have other plans: They’re building offices instead.Last week, the developers — a collaboration between SK Development, Ironstate and CB Development — filed plans for a 21-story office building at 358 Bowery, spanning approximately 112,600 square feet, according to Department of Building records. The plans call for 16 floors of offices above ground-floor retail and a community center. Morris Adjmi is listed as the architect of record.The site sits within the Noho-Bowery Corridor, which is currently zoned for low-rise manufacturing buildings. If the city’s proposal for the Soho/Noho rezoning is ultimately approved, developers could build a residential structure of approximately 117,000 square feet, provided it included affordable housing.Read moreRestoring Soho’s sacred ground?The battle to rezone Soho is just beginningThese developers could benefit the most from Soho’s rezoning In a statement,  Joe Marvilli, a spokesperson for the Department of City Planning, said that new development is “an important sign of strong confidence in New York City’s future.”“Like creating space for new jobs, building contextualized affordable housing in these two historic communities is key to a fair recovery,” he added. “That’s why DCP is moving forward this year on its plan to bring permanently affordable housing and economic opportunities for all New Yorkers to SoHo and NoHo.” DCP did not comment specifically on the plan for 358 Bowery.

first_imgLife is fleeting. I know, that’s a well-worn cliché, but hear me out. I was riding my road bike the other day and I almost died, which isn’t really that unusual. I’d estimate that I almost die on 10% of my road rides. Sometimes it’s because of suicidal squirrels that throw themselves beneath my front tire, but mostly it’s because of crazy/distracted/aggressive drivers. Road cycling is dangerous and I try to mitigate that danger by riding low-traffic roads in areas where the drivers are used to seeing cyclists on the road.So, there I am, riding one of those low traffic roads close to town, enjoying a mild downhill without the burden of cars when I have to slam on my brakes because some dude walks out of the woods on the side of the road with a freaking 40-foot ladder. The guy came out of nowhere and I almost went headfirst through the top of his ladder.The incident had me thinking that maybe there is no way to mitigate the danger of road cycling. That maybe I should give up the endeavor all together and just start taking spin classes. This is what I’m thinking about later on that same ride when I see a man in his pajamas getting his mail. He has a very peaceful look on his face as he approaches his mailbox, like he’s retired and this is the only obligation he has to fulfill on this particular day, and I see him jump, like he was startled by something. As I ride past him, I see what startled the guy: a very large bear is sitting in the brush right next to his mailbox. Maybe four feet from that retired guy. And that big bear’s cubs were only a few feet beyond that, scrambling around a fallen tree.Now, I don’t think that the guy was in any direct danger from that bear—black bears don’t typically make a habit out of mauling people–but a heart attack? That was a legitimate outcome from that particular scenario. I can see the headline now: Retired Guy Dies While Getting Mail.Thankfully, the dude didn’t have a heart attack. He slowly backed away from the bear and went back into his house to enjoy the rest of his day. But again, the incident had me thinking: road cycling isn’t dangerous. Life is dangerous. You can kick the bucket at any time, anywhere. Slip in the shower. Have a heart attack while getting your mail. Contract a flesh-eating virus at the water park. Have a seizure while watching Fox News and fall down and hit your head on the kitchen counter…there are so many random ways to die, there’s probably no logic in trying to avoid it. Like, I have a brother who won’t surf because he’s scared of sharks. But he smokes and eats fast food and has already had to have a stint put into one of his arteries, so it’s probably not going to be a shark that gets him, you know?Anyway, the two incidents on that particular ride (the ladder surprise and the bear surprise) only reinforced the notion that I actually should be riding my bike. To quote the great Ferris Beuller, “life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”If I’m going to die (and I reluctantly accept that I will die at some point), I might as well pedal my bike while I can.last_img read more

There’s something a little alienating about the fact that a server somewhere in Facebook’s infrastructure had the goods before I had even an inkling of trouble in paradise.But then, the whole relationship thing in Facebook is fraught. I have to imagine there have been screaming, tear-filled fights because one partner clicked “In a relationship” while the other clicked “Hey, let’s not rush things.” Or, maybe worse for some people, “Sweetheart, what are you putting down for ‘relationship status’?” “I’m glad you asked, because I’ve been meaning to talk to you about that.”No matter which checkbox you’ve been ticking – no, that’s not a smutty double-entendre – have a happy Valentine’s Day.
