Construction on Dock Street to Start Next Year?

by

There hasn’t been much news about Two Trees’ Dock Street development in Dumbo for going on two years, when the City Council approved a rezoning for the project. Yesterday, though, a press release brought a bit of info about the planned 17-story tower: Two Trees has formalized an agreement with the School Construction Authority for the 300-seat middle school that’s part of the development, which will also have luxury and affordable housing. There’s still no firm construction timetable “pending the resolution of a potential legal appeal. While a lawsuit by two Dumbo residents against the project was dismissed in October 2010 by a State Supreme Court judge, the plaintiffs have filed a notice of appeal and it unclear at this point whether they plan to follow up with the filing of the actual appeal.” (More about the suit here.) However, both The Post and Eagle report that Two Trees hopes to break ground next year and finish up work on the building by August 2014.
