BHA Responds to Park’s Developer Announcement

The Brooklyn Heights Association has responded to the Brooklyn Bridge Park Corporation’s announcement that it has selected a developer for the proposed high rise residential buildings on the Pier Six uplands. The BHA is “troubled” by the announcement, noting that:

The BHA points to several concerns, including school overcrowding, auto and pedestrian traffic, and says BBPC’s

[a]bandonment of the fundamental public agreement behind the Park—to limit development to only what is necessary to support it financially—leaves the community’s faith in fair process in tatters
