Brooklyn Heights locals have, as you may have heard, been making a huge stink about the height of the Toll Brothers/Starwood Capital-developed Brooklyn Bridge Park hotel/condo project the Pierhouse, the northern section of which has apparently exceeded 100 feet in supposed violation of an agreement from 2005. Recently, the Department of Buildings issued a Stop Work Order for the shorter portion of the project at 130 Furman Street in order to examine its height (which was supposed to be 55 feet—less than half of 90 Furman Street, the buidling that the Save the View campaign was created to protest), and NY YIMBY has just learned that two parapet walls on the roof will be removed, lowering the height (of the shorter building) by 1.5 feet. So, that ought to satisfy no one.
