A group of concerned neighbors won a small victory in the fight to stop a homeless shelter from opening near Billionaires Row in Midtown.
A state appeals judge is putting the plans on hold after a group of residents sued citing safety concerns.
The security equipment was ready to go and construction workers are going in. But the future shelter at the former Park Savoy hotel in the “Billionaires Row” neighborhood is not opening anytime soon, CBS2’s Lisa Rozner reported.
An appeals judge Wednesday ruled in favor of the West 58th Street Coalition, a group of neighbors.
“It’s a complete disaster,” said Les Fischer, a tenant with the West 58th Street Coalition.
The ‘Billionaires Row’ area is notable for containing some of the most expensive residences in the world. The top two floors of One57 sold to Michael Dell for $100.47 million in 2015, setting a record for the most expensive apartment ever sold in New York.
