The Eagle reports that a survey commissioned by the advocacy group Save The View Now shows that the penthouse structure atop the southern portion (the shorter part) of the Pierhouse (photo by Andrew Porter) encroaches by almost twenty feet into the protected scenic view plane (SV-1) from the Brooklyn Heights Promenade. The results of the survey were delivered to the City’s Department of Buildings (DOB) by State Senator Daniel Squadron and City Council Member Stephen Levin. The Brooklyn Bridge Park Corporation insists that there is no encroachment, noting that they submitted the building’s plans to DOB a year ago and that DOB found them in compliance with SV-1.
