The City Council has postponed the final vote on whether to grant approval to the Chetrit Group’s controversial residential towers at 77 Commercial Street in Greenpoint.

The decision on the towers was postponed pending further negotiations, Council members said, but declined to provide a specific date for the vote, DNAinfo reported.

Brooklyn’s Community Board 1 has previously said that the project doesn’t provide enough affordable and senior housing. [DNAinfo]Hiten Samtani
