Smile NEW YORK | 570 Fulton Street | 558 FT | 40 FLOORS

New 40-Story Tower Proposed At 570 Fulton Street, Downtown Brooklyn





Quote:
A new 40-story, mixed-use building could sprout from a wedge-shaped lot in Downtown, Brooklyn, pending approval from the NYC Department of City Planning. Zoning amendments would be required for construction to begin.

The property is under development by David Schwarz for Slate Property Group d/b/a 570 Fulton Property, LLC. Hill West Architects has most likely been tapped for design of the proposed building.

Located at 570 Fulton Street, the building would contain 139 residential units measuring a total 111,249 square feet. Residences would span floors 18 through 40 with amenities positioned on the 17th floor. Office space would occupy floors three through 16 and comprise 89,846 square feet. Finally, retail components on the ground flood and second level would comprise 12,433 square feet.

The building would not include parking accommodations.

See Renderings of 40-Floor Mixed-Use Tower Planned for Downtown Brooklyn





Quote:
According to the Environmental Assessment Statement (EAS), which provides an overview of the proposal and an initial analysis of its potential effects on the environment, the developers strive to build an approximately 40-floor, 558-foot-tall tower that would hold 89,846 gross square feet of offices, 111,249 gsf of residential space, and 12,433 gsf of retail. Hill West is listed as the architects in the document.

The modest, 7,200-square-foot site is located on a triangular block at the meeting of Downtown Brooklyn and Fort Greene. The tower would stand between the developers' now-leasing rental tower One Flatbush, and the 326-unit rental 66 Rockwell Place. The Fulton Street Mall starts across Flatbush Avenue, and the Brooklyn Arts District and Atlantic Terminal are nearby. Most importantly, several subway and bus lines converge at the site, making it ideal for high-density development.

An information website summing up the project, coupled with a few renderings is now online. It explains, "570 Fulton is a project imagined with Brooklyn’s communities in mind. The project will include affordable housing, office space planned for local businesses, and integrated design that will transform the doorway to Downtown Brooklyn."

Panel says no to another Downtown tower

BY JULIANNE CUBA


Quote:
The Manhattan-based developer seeking approval to upzone a swath of land in America’s Downtown in order to build a 40-story tower on Fulton Street — just a few blocks from where builders recently got the okay to erect two shrunken high-rises as part of the controversial 80 Flatbush mega-development — must nix its application, according to local civic leaders who blasted the scheme during a Sept. 13 Community Board 2 public hearing on the project.

“This upzoning is outrageous, and we’re always faced with this. I think we should really take a stand,” said CB2 member Carolyn Hubbard-Kamunanwire. “No developer comes and says, ‘We’re going to build something the way it should be built.’ ”
Quote:
Members of CB2’s Land Use Committee rejected the rezoning application 5-to-1, with one abstention. It now moves to the full board, which will cast its purely advisory vote, then to Borough President Adams, the City Planning Commission, Council, and finally Mayor DeBlasio as part of the city’s lengthy Uniformed Land Use Review Procedure.

The developers said they plan to erect a 215-foot as-of-right building filled mostly with condos if the city ultimately rejects the application, but the hope to get the green light in order to create a project that better serves the growing neighborhood, according to a bigwig at Slate Property Group.

“570 Fulton is a transformative project for Downtown Brooklyn, imagined with Brooklyn’s communities in mind,” said David Schwartz. “From office spaces for local business to affordable housing, this building puts Brooklyn first.”

But civic gurus blasted the real estate executives for trying to curry favor with community members by holding local charity events in the surrounding neighborhood leading up to the vote, most recently a back-to-school backpack give-away at Ingersoll Houses, a nearby public housing complex, just one day before the committee vote, on Sept. 12.
Quote:
But other community leaders called out board members for rejecting a project that would provide locals with even more housing options and office space, and would still sit about 280 feet below the taller of the two towers of Dumbo-based Alloy Development’s 80 Flatbush, and about 50 feet below the 610-foot Hub nearby.

“It is troubling that board members, who are supposed to represent this community, are so out of touch with the community,” said Ingersoll Houses Tenants Association president Darold Burgess in a statement. “We need affordable housing. We need space for local businesses. We need jobs. This building delivers for us, and is no bigger than other buildings right next door. What’s the problem?”

When the City Council finally tackles the Rikers issue, they should semi-repurpose the facility to include a wing that houses NIMBYs with the combined nonviolent dafty and recidivist stoner populations.

Good on the BrooklynPaper ending with this quote. People who oppose this development, and ones like it, are holding this city back.

“It is troubling that board members, who are supposed to represent this community, are so out of touch with the community,” said Ingersoll Houses Tenants Association president Darold Burgess in a statement. “We need affordable housing.

^^^^^^^^^

This is looking like a PR stunt. Just to make a point. I guess after the failures to stop other monstrosities.

Its a shame that they have such influence.

Kinda sucks that DoBro is such a hot bed for these anti-development folks.

But I think ultimately it will rise, as there is a process. Good old Deblasio will ensure it'll happen.

In general, the zoning needs to increase for many neighborhoods. To provide the parameters and acceptable range to increase density and add the much needed units. This way, the FAR would be higher and wouldn't raise so many questions, even if as-of-right.

The bloody irony is that its not that far from other taller towers or as the developmentally challenged would say "Monstrosities out of place with NYC, a skyscraper city".

Yeah, I don't think most people care about buildings, however tall. They put them all into one category. It's not something that really impacts the daily lives of people. But there is that vocal minority of NIMBYs who show up at every hearing as if their lives depended on it. The other people just go on living the city life. But more and more, people are starting to take notice. They question, "wait, why can't we have this again?" They see the NIMBY sham for what it is.

^^^^

Counter protesters are always welcomed. Tons of opposition, like at those Chinatown meetings regarding the jail tower, but hopefully as more become aware of the sham and hacky behavior of the nimbys, that we will see more protesting in favor of housing and growth.

I think it comes through education. The more people know about supply and demand, and the relationship towards prices, the better the city will become.

The more they realize the lost opportunities, more will be in favor. Like with 80 Flatbush, its a sham. A minor reduction. All of that protesting and all it did was knock the amount of units, by 30. They did harm, nothing positive, no matter the iota of gain they think they had.

I heard that the handful of complaints from the meeting had more to do with the subway than the building itself.

Split decision: Vote on Downtown tower galvanizes board before majority pans project


October 15, 2018
BY JULIANNE CUBA


Quote:
It’s an “aye” toward compromise.

Community Board 2’s full board last week outright rejected a developer’s request to rezone Fulton Street land in order to erect a 40-story tower — but not before the civic guru who cast the lone vote in favor of the 80 Flatbush megadevelopment when the full board voted against it earlier this year urged his colleagues to follow suit this time around, arguing doing so would at least give the panel a seat at the table for discussions should the project move forward.

Clinton Hiller Lenny Singletary, CB2’s second vice chairman, told the panel that by not flat out opposing the proposed high-rise, it may be in a better position to negotiate some changes to the project in order to make it as beneficial as possible for the community.

“In this particular case, there is nothing wrong with making our own recommendation on what we want conditions to be,” Singletary said at a Wednesday full-board meeting. “It’s not whether you are pro or against development. It’s not an all or nothing thing.”
Quote:
despite Singletary’s appeal, the full board ultimately voted to pan the proposal 19 to 13 with one abstention — even after other panel members urged their colleagues to think carefully before simply saying no, noting their opposition to 80 Flatbush did little to stop Council from approving a slightly shrunken version of the five-building complex in the end.

“We as a community board have to think going forward, we can pretty much tinker around the edges ” said John Dew, who once chaired the panel. “Our job is to do what’s best for the community, not stand and stomp.”

Singletary said board members could have used their concerns about the development — which include that it offers too little affordable housing, and creates too few jobs — as ammunition to demand the builder find ways to add more below-market-rate units and employment opportunities if they voted to approve the project with conditions, instead of simply telling the firm to take a hike.

“We have the opportunity to support affordable housing. Number two, there’s a constant conversation about jobs, and this is an opportunity to say we want jobs,” he said. “What I recommend is that we take the full comments that are inclusive both of the development and the community.”
Quote:
The rezoning application for the Fulton Street tower now moves to Borough President Adams, before going to the City Planning Commission, Council, and finally Mayor DeBlasio as part of the city’s lengthy Uniform Land Use Review Procedure.

Hopefully Singletary's common sense will prevail in the later processes, as it did in the 80 Flatbush decision.

Exactly. People have got to start looking at reality, and not just knee-jerking to "no". New buildings and developments are gonna happen, especially in a city like New York. The NIMBYs should focus more on how they happen as opposed to just holding the position that they shouldn't happen.

In other words, get a "seat" at the table.

^Yep. The key here is that despite the negativity of the community group, the developers did not reduce the number of affordable units in the process. Percentage wise, it actually increased with thirty market units lopped off. It's still so substantial the market units will still be more than enough to help with the cost of about a quarter of the units made affordable.
