The only thing new we have going for us is that the City is desperate for the tax revenue a building like this could generate.
The tall slender building should actually be encouraged by Astoria. If the developer used the density for a shorter building, it would block their views even more. I thought the previous developer did an excellent job appeasing the neighborhood. As long as Fioretti will accept it, Planning will accept it.
