Lenox Terrace Residents Fighting Against Proposed Commercial Rezoning

HARLEM — Resident of Lenox Terrace are fuming over the fact that their landlord left them in the dark after filing plans with the city to rezone their development.

The Olnick Organization, which owns Lenox Terrace, filed a pre-application with the Department of City Planning in November. They have not held any public meetings about their redevelopment plans in more than a year, tenants said.

“I was surprised and shocked because we were under the impression that they filed in May,” said Delsenia Glover, the president of the tenants association.

News of the plan wasn’t a complete shock. Olnick had shared variations of its proposed development since 2008. But the group had never gone as far as filing paperwork with the city.
