Chuck Close Versus The Developer

Chuck Close “is gearing up for a full-fledged battle with Olmstead Properties over a five-story condo building the company wants to build on a 6-by-12-foot portion of an L-shaped lot on Bond Street, next door to Close’s co-op. The complex – which would have 50 feet of frontage on Lafayette Street – would plunge Close’s studio into darkness, he says.”
