Advisory only. Eric knows that.

Thanks. If this was on Montague Street or on Prospect Park West, I'd protest too, but it's perfectly appropriate for Flatbush.

Fortunately where it matters, NYC Department of Buildings Commission is pro-development leaning. Deblasio as well, and his administration, is pro-development leaning (as seen with the increase in affordable housing units; up to 300,000 from 200,000). Mr.Adams suggestion is merely advisory. Hell, even the land marks commission is somewhat pro-development, and I get thier stance at times. If your going to modify a landmark, yah gotta have a high quality reason, and a project to match that is excellent.

I've been waiting on the person that really matters here, the local council member. Because that's what the city council will follow. Still haven't heard anything...

Speaking on behalf of New York City Council Majority Leader Laurie A. Cumbo, a representative told the crowd she did not have a position at this time, which elicited jeers from the audience.

New Yorkers debate pros and cons of 80 Flatbush development at City Planning Commission hearing

By Lore Croghan


Quote:
Opponents say that tripling this development site's density would set a dangerous precedent on the Flatbush Avenue corridor.

It would allow the construction of a skyscraper as tall as the Chrysler Building in low-rise Boerum Hill.

Supporters say this project is a model of responsible development.

It would bring affordable housing and a modern building for Khalil Gibran International Academy, whose aging facility doesn't meet students' needs.

Quote:
More than 30 project supporters testified

Supporters of the 80 Flatbush development outnumbered opponents three to one among the people who testified at Wednesday's hearing, with 34 speakers for it and 11 against it.

Alloy's co-developer is the New York City Educational Construction Fund. The Fifth Avenue Committee, a nonprofit community development corporation, will build and co-own the 200 units of permanently affordable housing included in the 80 Flatbush proposal.

Quote:
'We ask for balance,' an opponent says

At Wednesday's hearing, Boerum Hill Association President Howard Kolins said his organization agrees on the need for affordable housing and school construction but opposes Alloy's high-density design.

“The new Brooklyn needs to be built — but not by stepping on the traditional Brooklyn that so many [people] have created by preserving century-old buildings,” Kolins said. “We ask for balance.”
Quote:
Project would 'prevent the city from calcifying,' a supporter says

The 34 speakers who testified in support of the 80 Flatbush project included Downtown Brooklyn Partnership President Regina Myer, newly elected Downtown Brooklyn Partnership Chairman Ofer Cohen and members of property services workers union 32BJ SEIU.

Kirk Goodrich of Monadnock Development LLC put in a good word for the 80 Flatbush proposal. His firm recently partnered with Alloy in building residential development One John St. in Brooklyn Bridge Park.

Andrew Kalish, the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership's former director of cultural development, said the 80 Flatbush project “will prevent this city from calcifying and will ensure we continue this great state's slogan, which is ‘ever upwards.’”

That's the English translation for the motto on New York state's seal, which is the Latin word “Excelsior.”
