The Board of Standards and Appeals has told Whole Foods to go away and come back in late February for the final vote on the proposed Gowanus supermarket. The Whole Foods team showed up again yesterday to argue that it needed a zoning variance because building the market under current zoning would be too much of a hardship, particularly when it comes to the extra costs of grading the site and building a retaining wall on the waterfront. Members of the community, meanwhile, argued that the project is out of scale and will hurt the neighborhood's unique small business. [PMFA; previously]
