Checking in on the Wiliamsburgh Savings Bank Reno

The developer for the Williamsburgh Savings Bank renovation was at CB1 last night for a Landmarks approval, and Brownstoner has the details.

Things got a bit testy – and surreal – when the developer refused to admit that they were building an event space (it’s a museum!) or even had any plan to make money from the development. According to the Chief Financial Officer, they just haven’t worked any of that out yet.

The CFO did have the Landmarks proposal well in hand. The substance of the application to Landmarks was straightforward – so much so that it is not clear why it even requires a public review at LPC.
