An article in the New York Times yesterday sheds new light on the status of the Domino project. Great to see de Blasio fighting for the good of the community!

The most important ULURP meeting is tomorrow in the Community Room, Brooklyn Borough Hall, 209 Joralemon Street, Brooklyn, New York 11201, commencing at 6:00 P.M.

d. To allow the distribution of required or permitted accessory off-street parking spaces without regard for zoning lot lines.

e. To waive the requirements for a loading berth for retail or service uses.

2) For amendment of the Zoning Resolution:

a. To modify the Inclusionary Housing Program requirements to exempt non residential floor area above the ground floor from the requirement to be consistent with maximum permitted floor area as properties developed exclusively non-residential and to modify as it pertains to maximum income levels to qualify as affordable housing.

b. To waive or reduce loading berth requirements. To facilitate a mixed-use development including: approximately 2,300 residential units (including 660 units meeting the zoning requirements for affordable housing); approximately 504,000 sf of commercial office space; approximately 72,000 sf of retail space; approximately 42,000 sf for a health club; approximately 151,000 sf of community facility spaces (including a space for a 375-seat school, approximately 36,000 sf not-for profit/art studio space and approximately 45,000 sf for a not-for-profit sports and fitness center); approximately 1,050 parking spaces; and, approximately 6.85 acres of total public open space (including 3.76 acres of waterfront public access area and an approximately one acre known as Domino Square).
