Apparently they want to keep Gowanus an abandoned, toxic dump, instead of building like 20,000 units of affordable housing, plus schools, parks and transit improvements. Very progressive. Thank God Eric Adams is a strong supporter of the rezoning.

These communists are against any sort of development.

Gowanus Redevelopment Gets Go-Ahead as de Blasio’s Team Sails Away

By Greg David
September 22, 2021


With nearly unanimous approval Wednesday from the City Planning Commission, the long-in-the-making rezoning of Gowanus heads to crucial negotiations between key City Council members and Mayor Bill de Blasio over the Brooklyn neighborhood’s future.

The final result will be key to the de Blasio legacy: It’s the administration’s first effort to use rezoning to spur racial and economic diversification of one of the city’s whitest and increasingly wealthy neighborhoods.

The proposal is also the linchpin of efforts to clear up the polluted area, home to the infamous Gowanus Canal, a Superfund site. And the rezoning bid comes as a similar de Blasio-sponsored effort in SoHo and NoHo in Manhattan appears bogged down by intense opposition.

…….One of the largest projects underway is a 1,200-unit rental development in the recently rezoned neighborhood of Gowanus, along the industrial waterfront in Brooklyn. A quarter of the apartments, 300 units, will charge below market-rate rent to tenants, the developers said; a majority of those units will go to renters making no more than 60 percent of the area median income, or about $72,000 for a family of three.

The project, designed by the architecture firm Fogarty Finger and developed by Tavros Capital and Charney Companies, will have four buildings. The biggest component, a pair of towers at 300 Nevins Street, will have 654 units and incorporate the buildings into a public esplanade that will hug the Gowanus Canal. The project is expected to be completed in 2025.
