B’Stoner Concerned About Slow Going at Love Lane Condos; How About You?

Brownstoner seems a little more concerned about the construction of the new Love Lane condos (aka Love Lane Mews) than the average Brooklyn Heights man (or gal) on the street.  While we look forward to less parking and more people crowding the lines at Key Food, it really hasn’t been the first thing that comes to mind while we’re sipping our morning joe. Is that so wrong?

Brownstoner: Love Lane…: Why are things moving so slowly at Love Lane Mews? Building permits were approved earlier this month, a couple of weeks after we reported that Sterling Equities had taken a $10 million buy-out from its partner Zucker Group. But a ride down College Place yesterday revealed a handful of workers who seemed to be dealing with some kind of plumbing issue; certainly no good construction porn.

    I dont think Brownstoner seemed too concerned. I can’t speak for the average brooklyn heights guy, but I detour past there once in a while to see how things are progressing just like Brownstoner did. It’s not the first thing I thnk about during the day, but neither is the new fruit guy.

    Anyone have link to the floorplans of the Love Lane condos that were approved? I’ve only seen the old ones.

    Not all are thrilled about the Love Lane building plans, which remain a mystery. Probably because the developers are working to create new outdoor space [in “historical” Brooklyn Heights], which will have a physical impact on the living quality of Hicks Street residents.

    The former Garage and the Hicks Street strip of homes are connected to each other. Together, they form an air pocket that sadly makes the perfect receptor for noise. (Yippeee! 38 new residents with outdoor space for smoking it up and chatting it up way into the wee hours of the morning).

    Love Lane Mews breaks historical tranquility and brings with it Manhattan’s compact way of living right into our own back yard.

    Not Concerned.

    Speaking of Love Lane. Saw a group of three people taking pictures of the Love Lane street sign over the weekend. If you look closely you’ll notice that there’s a “One-Way” sign underneath the Love Lane sign.

    “How depressing is that?” said a young woman, one of the three taking pictures, pointing out that love shouldn’t be a one-way street.

    Valid point I thought!

    Noticed scaffolding going up this afternoon. For those who care.

    Does anyone know why a stop-work order for unsafe conditions was issued on 9/5/2008 at the Love Lane project? I have a lovely view of the back of the site from my apt and did notice workmen climbing around on scaffolding three and four stories up without helmets or harnesses last week. Thought about calling to inform the city. Did someone else? Or was it some completely different unsafe condition that led to the order?
