The City Planning Commission has given the green light to Alloy Development’s massive project at 80 Flatbush in Downtown Brooklyn.

The commission unanimously approved the plans, and the City Council will vote on it later this summer, according to Commercial Observer.

Alloy and the New York City Educational Construction Fund have partnered on the development, which would span five buildings and 1.3 million square feet, bringing 922 apartments, a cultural center and two schools to a lot across from Atlantic Terminal. It will include two schools with 350 seats, 40,000 square feet of retail space and 245,000 square feet of office space.

It will also include a 74-story and a 38-story tower, and the developers are pursuing an upzoning to be able to build the project.

Neighborhood groups and local politicians have expressed their opposition to the project. In June, Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams said that he would like to reduce its height from 986 feet to 600 feet.

The City Council’s zoning subcommittee will vote on the project next week, and the full council will need to vote on the project by the end of September. [CO] – Eddie Small
