At Tuesday’s meeting, the main opposition was focused on the market-rate condos, according to the Daily News. The president of the Economic Development Corporation, James Patchett, said the mayor was considering whether it was appropriate to build market-rate condos on any city-owned land, and whether to introduce this as a citywide policy, according to the Daily News.
City Council member Laurie Cumbo, who represents Crown Heights, continued to voice her opposition to the project in its current state. Other members of the City Council generally tend to side with the neighborhood Council member, so the project will find it hard to pass without her backing. Cumbo is also opposed to the market-rate condos at the development.
