BSA Hooks Up 360 Smith


You can act disappointed—just don't act surprised! The notoriously developer-friendly Board of Standards and Appeals this morning voted to let construction of 360 Smith Street, aka the Oliver House, proceed under now-outdated zoning rules that allow for a height of 70 feet instead of 55 feet. Despite DOB testimony that the foundation was only 20% complete when the Carroll Gardens Zoning Text Amendment was passed in July, the BSA found that it was in fact "substantially complete." Local blogger Pardon Me for Asking, who witnessed the proceedings this morning, had this to say: "After watching first hand the deliberations and favoritism at the Board Of Standards And Appeals, this city might as well save money by replacing them with a big rubber stamp."
