Atlantic Yards housing to move to Crown Heights?
A new article today mentions that Assemblyman Roger Green of Prospect Heights is proposing that housing for the Atlantic Yards project be move to the area around Grand Ave. and Bergen St. on the far eastern edge of Prospect Heights and Crown Heights. This is only a few blocks from the Washington Condos also.
Quite an interesting development, as this area seems to be ripe for development. A recent bike ride through the area confirms that it is full of auto-body shops and warehouses.
The article duly notes:
The blocks are home to many car repair shops, small factories, a few homes and retail businesses. Green insists many owners would sell or could be relocated. He called many of the businesses "chop shops of dubious ownership."
