Waiting for B5 tower: initial permit filing in May was disapproved by DOB, which is not unusual

As I reported 6/10/20, in May, Greenland Forest City Partners filed permits for the B5 tower (698 Atlantic Avenue), the first over the Vanderbilt Yard.

But there's no date for construction, said Scott Solish of Greenland USA, indicating that the filing of permits "starts a lengthy review."

Indeed, I took a look at the Department of Buildings page for the site (aka 700 Atlantic Avenue) and saw that the submitted plan was disapproved, and is presumably being revised. That's hardly unusual, but it does mean that the simple filing of a permit deserves context. This could take a while.
