Discussion prevents community board from voting on Dumbo project

December 18, 2008 01:15PM

At
a four-hour long Community Board 2 meeting, more than 80 opponents and
supporters of Two Trees Management’s proposed 18-story building in
Dumbo showed up, and the discussion ran so long that the board didn’t
have time to vote on it. The 18-story building would be built next to
the Brooklyn Bridge On Dock Street, and would include 325 rental units,
retail space and a public middle school. Opponents think the building, which is in the public review process,
will ruin views of the Brooklyn Bridge and bring traffic to the
neighborhood. City officials had said earlier in the year that the
school system does not need a middle school in Dumbo because there is
capacity in other schools throughout the district.
