Midtown east and Carl Weisbrod,
Plans to rezone Midtown East are one step closer to becoming a reality after the city kick-started a lengthy land-use review process on Tuesday.
The Department of City Planning certified a proposal to rezone Midtown East, meaning the plans will now make their way through the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure, department officials announced on Tuesday. As part of the ULURP, the proposal — which could add 6.5 million square feet of commercial space to the neighborhood — will be reviewed by community boards 5 and 6, the Manhattan borough president, the City Planning Commission and the City Council. The process is expected to take seven months.
