Jefferies Group CEO Sues To Stop Tribeca Roof Deck

Beach Sunrise

Jefferies Group CEO Richard Handler sued to stop construction of a roof deck across the street from his Tribeca penthouse apartment, saying it’s illegal and would spoil his view.

Bloomberg reports that Handler, who indirectly owns the penthouse apartment at One York Street, filed a petition in New York State Supreme Court in Manhattan on March 25 against the city’s building commissioner, Robert LiMandri, and the owner of 50 Varick Street, to stop a construction project there and have its permits revoked.

An elevator vestibule for a proposed roof deck and bar area would block views from the penthouse, whose owners face 'significant noise and light impingements from the project and future roof deck use as a late night rooftop bar', according to the petition.

'The project will significantly obstruct the panoramic river views from petitioner’s apartment', according to the petition. 'In addition, use of the building roof deck as an outdoor event space and its concomitant noise will impair the use and value of petitioner’s apartment'.
