Carroll Gardens in the Downzone

The Brooklyn Paper reports on the city's presentation of the long-promised Carroll Gardens rezoning (which also covers the Columbia Street Waterfront District): "The plan, shown to Community Board 6’s Land use and Landmarks Committee on Thursday night, would impose a maximum building height of 50 or 70 feet on dozens of blocks in South Brooklyn. One exception was the one block long Tiffany Place, where existing taller buildings led the city to place an 80-foot limit. In a neighborhood where activists are not shy about lambasting city policy, many members of the audience in PS 58 on Carroll Street literally applauded the City Planning officials."
