BHB reader Rob Foley shot this presentation to P.S. 8 parents by Two Trees Jed Walentas regarding the dock Street Middle School. Brownstoner sat through the video and offers this synopsis:
Browstoner: Two Tress Talks: In the clip, Jed Walentas gestures at renderings, describing where the project would be (“my mom’s carousel is up in the building over here,” etc.) and says it would result in more than 400 parking spots after the 200 currently on the site are done away. Walentas also says it’s Two Trees’ “hope” that the DOE will want to operate a public middle-school on the property. All told, the hotly contested development would have three buildings, one rising to 17 stories, one at 8 stories, and one built to 2 stories, with 400 apartments and 10,000-square-feet of retail. In order for the proposal to move forward, the site’s zoning needs to be changed from manufacturing to mixed-use.
