CurbedWire: The Sound of Discord at One Hanson, More Fun About Development in North Brooklyn

FORT GREENEWe're not going out on a limb to say that someone is pissed off about some issues at One Hanson. Per a press release: "IS ONE HANSON PLACE TURNING BACK THE CLOCK ON BROOKLYN WORKERS? Greedy real estate developers have turned the Williamsburgh Savings Bank tower into luxury condominiums maintained by non-union workers. In doing so, they are denying the workers who keep this landmark running the family health insurance and job security that 60,000 other New York building service workers receive." Website to come, we presume? [CurbedWire Inbox]

GREENPOINTThe rezoning follies are playing in North Brooklyn with a huge proposal to rezone 175 blocks in Greenpoint and Central Williamsburg. Per a release "the rezoning is meant to prevent new out-of-scale development by establishing height limits and to create opportunities for affordable housing through the inclusionary housing program." The fun and games start tonight at 6:30 at the Capitol One Bank at Calyer and Manhattan. We have faith the discussion will be polite.
