The Bloomberg administration wants a private company to build two large new piers on the Greenpoint waterfront. Yesterday, the city’s Economic Development Corp. began soliciting bids to create for the two projects, reports The New York Post. One of the piers would be built on 18,000 square feet of mostly-submerged land at the end of Java Street; another would be at the end of India Street. Both would connect to the 14-mile Greenway. We look forward to responses that will seek to rejuvenate an underutilized portion of the Greenpoint waterfront and will allow local residents and visitors to access the waterfront, said David Lombino, an EDC spokesman.

A demolition application was filed on Monday, but the DOB didn’t approve it because the filing lacked a plan exam. Developer Rabsky Group is behind the development, […]
A mixed-use development is in the works for part of a very large empty site on Myrtle Avenue across from the Marcy Houses in Bed Stuy, New York NIMBY reported. Architect Charles Mallea filed a new building application Monday for an eight-story, 46-unit building at 802-806 Myrtle Avenue. The street frontage will cover three of 15 contiguous empty […]
