On March 15th, FRIENDS and concerned neighbors from the Eastsiders for Sensible Development held a public meeting regarding the proposed 370 foot residential tower at 1297-1299 Third Avenue (betweeen East 74th and East 75th Streets).

Over 160 neighbors gathered to hear urban planner George Janes share what is known to date about the proposed development.
