Stop illegal luxury towers in Two Bridges!

Donate to our legal fund to stop the illegal luxury towers planned for the Two Bridges waterfront on the Lower East Side!
This fund will go to cover the legal cost of this fight, including fees for the lawyers and engineers. Please donate and spread the word to save people's lives and the environment from the unscrupulous big developers!
We are in the final push to stop the four planned luxury towers in Two Bridges on the Lower East Side from getting built and causing massive displacement across the LES and Chinatown. For over 4 years, the community has been fighting back against the proposal for these towers. We have had victories - like marches with hundreds of people, petitions with thousands of signatures, and even a lawsuit that put a temporary stop to these developments until the ruling was overturned in higher court. Now, because of new environmental laws passed in New York state, the towers are illegal on even more grounds than before. We are suing to defend the environmental rights of thousands of people in Two Bridges, protecting our right to clean air, light, and water, and ensuring that the low-income buildings in the area don't have their structural integrity compromised by these dangerous new developments. Our community is not for sale!
Some of the issues residents of Lands End II (265 and 275 Cherry St) where two of the towers are planned to go up include:
  • Water running brown for days when developers were doing preliminary drilling at the construction site
  • Cracks in the buildings' basements, and load-bearing walls in apartments
  • Sloping floors indicating that something in the foundation of the building is already wrong
  • Feeling their apartments shake when the subway goes by underground, when they never used to feel this happening
82 Rutgers, an affordable building that is directly next to the already built Extell Tower went through a lot of damage during the construction, and will face even more threats if these towers go up. Residents in that building report similar infrastructure issues in the building, but also talk about the damage it did to their health, such as:
  • 9/11 survivors with compromised lungs having even more difficulty breathing because of the dust and chemicals in the air during the construction of the Extell Tower
  • Residents developing insomnia and anxiety because of the constant noise and vibrations felt in the building
