Happy Birthday, Waterfront Rezoning!

New, 2 comments

Four years ago, Williamsburg and Greenpoint developers were high-fiving like a junior varsity basketball team, and residents were wondering if their neighborhoods just got destroyed. Yep, the massive rezoning of the Williamsburg/Greenpoint waterfront?which made industrial blocks high-rise friendly?is celebrating its fourth anniversary, and blog Brooklyn 11211 files a lengthy look at the rezoning's impact. There have been pluses (more open spaces), minuses (slow progress of those open spaces), mixed results (affordable housing) and plenty of shovels in the ground. Williamsburg Warriors, wherefore art thou? [Brooklyn 11211]
