CB6 Okays Toll Brothers' Spot Rezoning


At last night's CB6 Landmark/Land Use committee meeting, members gave the thumbs up to Toll Brothers' request for a spot rezoning of the site along the Gowanus Canal, between Carroll and 2nd Streets. The change would happen in advance of the neighborhood-wide rezoning being undertaken by City Planning, allowing Toll Brothers to erect a mixed-use development with housing between four and 12 stories, a couple of hundred parking spaces and a public park along the canal. According to Pardon Me For Asking, even some members who voted yes did so reluctantly; they want the canal cleaned and feel the best way to make that happen is to have constituents living near it. PFMA points out the Councilman Bill de Blasio lobbied the committee to say yes, and Toll Bros. spent $365,000 on lobbying efforts. Far as we know they don't have to pay for cleaning up the canal.
