King & Prince of Dumbo Must Be Displeased

New, 1 comment

We're a little late in getting to this today, but last night the local Community Board never got around to voting on Two Trees Management's proposed big rental buildings with a middle school on Dock Street in Dumbo. "The hired guns were all on display, from the laser pointing architect (who did her best to show the building from the middle of the East River, and hiding the obvious obstructions to the bridge, to the rent-a-lobbyist/lawyer, to all the people that the Walentas family has tossed scraps to over the years (e.g. merchants getting sweetheart commercial rent to make real estate values increase in DUMBO, to clergy)." For the record 38 people spoke for the proposal and 49 in opposition. The Board never voted on supporting or opposing. Next time. [BHB]
