Details are starting to leak about developer Robert Levine's plans for the 12-story Brooklyn waterfront building he purchased from the Jehovah's Witnesses for $200 million. The 450 luxury condos at One Brooklyn Bridge Park (now with basic web presence!) will enjoy refrigerated storage for grocery delivery, a meditation room, an indoor driving range, private riverfront cabanas and one big fat lawsuit. The Daily News reports that opponents are going to file suit in an effort to block the private residences, which will sit on public park land once that whole thing gets built. That's not putting the brakes on Levine's huge marketing push, however. This one's shaping up to be a real doozy, friends.
