Anti-gentrification activists may have spent a year disrupting community board meetings over efforts rezone Prospect Lefferts Gardens and southern Crown Heights, but new construction in the area marches on.

In March, Simon Baron Development and Quandrum Global leased a parking garage at 267-269 West 87th Street in the Upper West Side, just outside of the neighborhood’s extensive historic district.
