Report from the Rally Against the Condo-Hotel
from the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation, http://www.gvshp.org/
BIG CROWD RALLIES AGAINST TRUMP SOHO CONDO-HOTEL: Over 100 demonstrators,
including Assemblymember Deborah Glick, City Council Zoning Subcommittee Chair Tony Avella, and representatives of City Councilmember Alan Gerson joined GVSHP, the SoHo Alliance, and more than a dozen community groups for a press conference this Sunday calling upon the City NOT to issue construction permits for the 45-story Trump SoHo Condo-Hotel. GVSHP and other participants in the press conference contend that a condo-hotel inherently violates the zoning for this site and should not be allowed, and that Trump is trying to get around the zoning and the public approval process required for such projects. GVSHP cited and displayed a long history of Trump and partners advertising their development as a ‘residence,’ which would violate the zoning for the area.
