East Village Residents Feuding Over Future of Abandoned Public School Building

Wednesday, March 29, 2017

Ken Fisher, a member of Cozen O’Connor’s Business Law Department, discusses his client’s development plans in New York City’s East Village on New York One News. Ken’s client plans to develop a former elementary school, which has remained vacant for 20 years, but the project remains delayed due to debate surrounding deed restrictions requiring the building to be used as a community facility. The developer intends to develop the building into dorms for Adelphi University, satisfying the community use clause. Ken explains that the debate surrounding the building is not because “They don’t trust [the developer]. That’s just a façade. It’s because they don’t like him and it’s because he won’t give them the building.”
