Rose Plaza wins key pol’s support

April 14, 2010 09:44AM

Developer Isack Rosenberg has won the support of Williamsburg Council member Steve Levin after upping the number of affordable units in His Rose Plaza on the River complex. The developer, who had agreed earlier in the week to make 30 percent of the 774-unit project affordable at the request of Levin, will now also increase the number of family-sized units to 74 and designate all of those larger units for below-market rates. The larger units are intended to accommodate the area’s large Hasidic population, which, prior to the new Levin-Rosenberg deal, were angling to block the developer’s proposed rezoning for the Kent Avenue project. Rose Plaza got the go-ahead from the Department of City Planning last month. [Brooklyn Paper]
