Two Trees’ promise to include 660 units of affordable housing reportedly went over well with the board, which also recommended hiring locally for the project and suggested changes to the mix and range of incomes for the affordable housing.

Two Trees launched the ULURP process at the beginning of November, and the proposal will go before the full community board for review in the coming weeks. [Brownstoner]Julie Strickland
