CB1 Panel Block Developer’s Waterfront Towers

From last week’s Brooklyn Paper, a report on CB1’s Land Use Committee review of Rose Plaza (the site to the south of Schaefer Landing, currently occupied by Certified Lumber). The article focuses on housing – number of units and affordability – but the committee’s objections extend to areas such as public open space, industrial relocation and (some potentially very considerable) environmental issues at the site (it was once home to a manufactured gas plant).

The full board will take up the committee’s recommendation tomorrow night: 6:30 pm on Dec. 1 at the Swingin’ Sixties Senior Center, 211 Ainslie St.
