Although the number of condos planned for Fort Greene last year was among the highest of any Brooklyn neighborhood, developer Galit Network is having trouble getting approval for its proposed 40-story Residential Tower On Flatbush Avenue because of a district rezoning. Galit initially planned a 35-story tower but now wants to add five stories to the project.
