Carter Horsley's Review of Arcadia

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"Air-rights transfers - the exchange of unused development rights from one property to another - are not unusual in New York City, but they are seldom used to build directly above the other property. Usually, the properties are adjacent lots that may be legally merged for new construction on the combined lot.

This 20-story condominium apartment building, however, has used the air-rights from the low-rise apartment building with fire escapes, immediately to its east, to cantilever part of its bulk over that building, a rare phenomenon in the city." Read Carter's Full Review
