A $150 million deal has been signed for a “boutique office building” to rise at 3rd Avenue and St. Mark’s Place.Multiple office buildings, hotels and high-rise condos are planned for this area, pushing out longtime residents and businesses.

The East Village Community Coalition strongly supports the rezoning
of 3rd and 4th Avenues. We call for timely community planning that is accountable to the people who live here, before it is too late.

Save The 3rd And 4th Avenue Corridors 6:30PM WED 9/13

Critical CB 3 Meeting: Rezoning the 3rd & 4th Avenue Corridors  

Save Third & Fourth Avenues in the East Village!
Join GVSHP and neighbors at the
Community Board 3 Land Use Committee Meeting
Wednesday, September 13 6:30pm

Rutgers Community Center 200 Madison Street (btwn Rutgers & Pike Streets)
F Train to East BroadwayM 15 Bus (1/2 Ave) to Pike & Madison

Meeting begins at 6:30 pm; this is item #4

GVSHP will be presenting its proposal for rezoning the 3rd and 4thAvenue corridors to prevent oversized commercial development in this area, such as the 300 room, 13-story hotel under construction at 112-120 East 11th Street, at this upcoming Community Board 3 Land Use Committee meeting. GVSHP is proposing and seeking zoning protections for the area between 5th and 3rd Avenues, Union Square and Astor Place,which is unique within the Village and East Village for its lack of adequate zoning and landmark protections. Community Board 3 ONLYcovers the area east of 4th Avenue, so Wednesday’s meeting is solely focused on 3rd and 4th Avenues.
(Community Board 2 covers west of 4th Avenue, and is already STRONGLY on record in support of our proposed zoning protections for Broadway and University Place.)

If you oppose overdevelopment in this area, it is vital that you attend. This is not a public hearing, but residents of Community Board 3 may speak in support of zoning protections for Third and Fourth Avenues. Thank you, and see you there!
