To the development team--- talk is cheap. If you truly were committed to this neighborhood, you will NOT attempt to recreate Manhattan. I am not in favor of this proposal, it is GROSSLY out of scale for the area. The low profile of the adjacent area is predominantly residential, and predominantly less than six stories. What needs to be acknowledged is the scale of the proposal will incorporate 2 towers taller than Times Square One, seen globally every New Year's Eve as the ball drops. I have been a renter in this area for over 25 years and chose to stay because it is a truly diverse NEIGHBORHOOD, which is NOT Times Square v2, Williamsburg, Manhattan or downtown Brooklyn in character. Most significantly, the project is NOT addressing what is truly needed in the neighborhood and city in general ---TRULY AFFORDABLE housing for the working and middle class families who are the engine upon which the city functions. That means offering way more than the minimum required by MIH zoning, and offering the affordable units IN PERPETUITY. It means the affordable units offered will be offered at less than a 30% share of the monthly income of every renter. It means affordable senior housing units would be offered in addition to the MIH 25% minimum number of affordable units available to the public housing market serving families in need of affordable housing. Anything less is smoke and mirrors, which your entire campaign is built upon.

no improvements will be made to any of the surrounding infrastructure, including the power grid and public transportation: the developers do not have to pay for added infrastructure.

I'm worried about adding additional housing without additional infrastructure. We have crowded schools, crowded trains and a crowded hospital in the neighborhood.

Five towers above 20 stories – the tallest at 27 stories – and multiple others above 10 stories, adding 2800 luxury apartments that are well above market rate.

This project will bring huge profits to the developers at the expense of working class neighbors. Billionaires will be getting tax breaks from this project for 30+ years.
