Air Rights and High Rises

16 Jul


I was watching an old CNBC show about Donald Trump last week and it discusses Trump Towers in New York and how he bought the air rights from Tiffany’s in order to build his massive towers over looking Central Park. It got us to thinking here at ‘Protect Sheridan Road’ about air rights and building as of right. The site on Sheridan Road near Foster could see a massive high rise of 10, 20 or even 40 stories without really having to get input from the neighbors it will dramatically impact.

A building of that size CANNOT BE BUILT on that site! The good news is that our Alderman, Harry Osterman along with residents can put a height restriction on this property so that a development can go in that will have a positive impact on our neighborhood. Let him hear it!
