Last Friday, February 3rd, a judge granted Save Gansevoort a temporary restraining order which for the moment prohibits the developer from starting demolition at 60-68 and 70-74 Gansevoort Street.
The hearing originally scheduled for Tuesday, February 7th, has been laid over and is now scheduled for Thursday, February 9th:
Thursday, February 9, 2:15 PM
60 Centre Street, Room 345 (at Foley Square)
(the hearing will start promptly; allow an extra 10 minutes to pass through security)
At this hearing, the court will be considering whether to grant a temporary injunction that would prevent the developer from doing any demolition or construction work on these two buildings for the duration of the court proceedings. There will likely be discussion of the substantive issues underlying our lawsuit to overturn the decision by the Landmarks Preservation Commission approving the massive Gansevoort development. It should be an informative afternoon!
We hope you can join us at this hearing. A good crowd is important to show the judge that there is strong community support for preserving the intact block of historic market buildings on Gansevoort Street.
