A site plan shows the developer's proposal to build ample public space around his 470-foot tower (1) and 200-foot tower (2), as well as two piers, one for ferry service, the other an historic sloop. Click here to view larger.

A key feature of the project is demapping adjacent streets and turning them into public parks, creating more usable open space but also a larger lot for the project to rise from.

Bernstein is not the first developer to flaunt zoning restrictions in the area. A project immediately to its north designed by Ishmael Levya received approvals earlier this year to rise to 400 feet, 100 feet higher than allowed under the zoning.
