Village Voice Goes Easy on Waterfront Plan

    by

    The Village Voice, which rarely has anything nice to say about anything, offers up a surprisingly positive take on the Greenpoint-Williamsburg Redevelopment Plan. “Williamsburg deal great for Manhattan developers,” the subhed reads, “but not everyone will be priced out.” The article goes on to note several notable aspects of the deal, including the fact that the developers cannot transfer their affordable housing quotas to other projects. The deal set precedent by providing $20 million for nonprofit groups to aid manufacturers. And it created a $2 million fund to battle residential displacement.
