A few major projects approved in the 421a crunch period were closer to Downtown. Forest City Ratner got the go-ahead on a 305-unit plan at 461 Dean Street. The tower, known as B2, is expected to be the world’s tallest modular structure when it is completed. That permit was issued on June 10.Isn't the B2 tower 363 units, and wasn't it approved years ago? Yes.
But B3 is also 461 Dean Street, Lot 2, according to this DOB filing, which also identifies it as Block 1118, Lot 2.
|B3, from Zoning Diagram|
The first zoning diagram, for B2 (above), identifies the location as 461 Dean Street, Block 1127, Tent. [Tentative?] Lot 2. As far as I can tell, Block 1127 no longer exists. Indeed, as noted above, it's also called Block 1118
The second zoning diagram, for B3, identifies the location as 461 Dean Street, Lot 3, but also Block 1118, Lot 2.
Bottom line: those filing (and reading) should be more careful.
