Northern Greenpoint Development Update

by GWAPP on

A brief update on the northern Greenpoint Development meeting, held last Thursday, March 25th, 2015 at the Dupont Street Senior Center.

The evening’s agenda included progress reports from developers 77 Commercial and Greenpoint Landing.

Construction by developers appears to be proceeding without any major surprises. There were a few complaints about weekend construction variances but the developers said they were playing catchup due to wintertime weather-related work slowdowns and they did not anticipate continuing the practice for much longer.

There was some discussion of what’s been done to address the feral cat population. 77 Commercial Street noted that their construction manager had done a walk thru with a local resident. It was also noted that there is a possum and a raccoon that will also need to be relocated.

The evenings second agenda item was a presentation from the DEC about the former NuHart Plastic Manufacturing Facility development.

DEC representatives said the remedial investigation is ongoing and should conclude by May/June. The early indications are that the plumes may be moving in different directions. See related documents supplied at the meeting by DEC and others here:

A representative from the developer of the NuHart site, Dupont Street Developers, was also in attendance. Lisa Bloodgood from Councilman Steve Levin’s office said that future northern Greenpoint development meetings could be organized to devote more time to a presentation exclusively from this developer.

Stay tuned for more detailed notes from Councilman Levin’s office.
