BSA Vested Rights Decision Upheld by First Department

BSA Vested Rights Decision Upheld by First Department

In March 2015, New York Law School’s CityLand website published “BSA Vested Rights Decision Upheld by First Department” covering Jordan Most’s and Frank St. Jacques’ representation of GRA V, LLC in a common law vested rights case. The First Department upheld the lower court ruling recognizing GRA V, LLC’s common law vested right to complete construction. Significantly, the First Department recognized that in the context of common law vesting “minor amendments to plans are permitted to cure errors and administrative irregularities, and to validate a permit retroactively.”
