There are whisperings that Mayor Rudy is starting to get cauliflower ear from those that protest not yet too much about the Unified Bulk Zoning
Amendment, and he sees the problems at hand if this goes forward.
The huge hole, some say it's now around 80 feet deep, has to get filled with foundation to beat City Planning's proposed unified bulk zoning
changes that could go into effect in July or August and would cap the tower at 495 feet.
At the time, West Side community leaders were seething over the 545-foot height of the Lincoln Square project, which includes a condominium tower, a multiplex and a sports club, and they pressed the Planning Commission to enact the bulk zoning
laws, limiting the bulk the height of future buildings, both in the Special Lincoln Square District, as well as on the Upper East Side.
