Last week, Community Board 1 (CB1) posted an agenda notice notifying residents of an upcoming public meeting on the Greenpoint Landing Project. The project, which will sit on 22 acres of Greenpoint waterfront, proposes ten residential buildings each reaching thirty to forty stories high. In order to begin development on this project, the developers must undergo the ULURP (Uniform Land Use Review Process) approval, which includes a period of public comment through our local Community Board. From CB1’s agenda posting:

Greenpoint Landing: Park Tower is proposing 4.2 million square feet of mixed-use development on a 22 acre waterfront site in Greenpoint. The City has been working with the developer on the plan, which includes the disposition of city-owned property. It is expected that the project will certify into ULURP summer 2013.

If you’d like to make your voice heard about the impact this project will have on our community, please attend the public meeting:

Date: Monday, May 6, 2013
Time: 6:30pm
Location: McCarren Park Recreation Center
(776 Lorimer Street, Brooklyn 11222)

In addition to the Greenpoint Landing presentation, the meeting will also cover developments at 77 Commercial Street and the former MTA property at 65 Commercial Street. A representative from the Economic Development Corporation will present on the Newtown Barge and Box Street Parks, the two parks adjacent to Greenpoint Landing and 77 Commercial Street.

    Thank you for the information about the meeting.
    This proposed project would certainly have an enormous effect on this area much of it detrimental. Ten thirty to forty story apartment buildings seem inappropriate in many ways, including their scale relative to the character of the neighborhood.
    I thought that area was going to be devoted to green space (parks).
