The Department of Public Service recently received a request from the property owners, Gravity Project 2 - Tower-Garage, LLC, Gravity 2 - Office, LLC, and Gravity 2 - Midrise, LLC c/o Kaufman Development, asking that the City release the reserved easements over this area to clear title for this site. After receipt of this request the Department of Public Service, Division of Infrastructure Management, verified with all the public and private utility companies that there are no public utilities or need for these easements, located within the requested area and that they have no objections to these portions of the easements being released. The following ordinance authorizes the Director of the Department of Public Service to execute those documents necessary to release the portions of easements as described below and attached exhibit to allow the area to clear title for this site. The City will receive a total of $500.00, to be deposited in Fund 7748, project P537650, for releasing of the easement so the property can clear title.
