Was it just last night that we were waxing rhapsodic about our love for all things David Walentas over cocktails? In fact, it was. Comes this morning to the Curbed inbox the above rendering for a new Dumbo mixed-use development from Two Trees Management, which is of course Walentas' development company. It's set on the St. Ann's Warehouse/Nova Clutch building site bounded by Water, Dock and Front Street, a stone's throw from the Brooklyn Bridge, and includes 400 apartments. Parsing the press release, however, the headline—"TWO TREES ANNOUNCES PLANS FOR A NEW MIDDLE SCHOOL IN MIXED-USE PROJECT IN DUMBO"—offers a hint of what part of the development Two Trees hopes will win over neighbors. (Public School: the new must-have luxury amenity!) As to what impact this move will have on the Bridgehampton polo scene, only time will tell.
