Yesterday, former New York governor Eliot Spitzer revealed the first official rendering for Spitzer Enterprises’ mega development on the South Williamsburg waterfront. The $700 million trio of 24-story rental towers was designed by ODA Architects, who referred to the project as a “molded iceberg.” Today, Lincoln Restler, a senior policy advisor to Mayor de Blasio, took to Facebook to deem the design “offensive,” continuing to say, “Someone who had fashioned himself as a progressive and sold properties worth 1.5 billion last year is now trying to squeeze every penny out of a development in our neighborhood – without any concern for the needs of the community.” Do you agree with his social media rant?
