New condos at Myrtle and Johnson in downtown Brooklyn

While developers and city politicians wax poetic about a new 40-story luxury condo going up at the corner of Myrtle and Johnson, not everyone is so happy. The Brooklyn Papers article quotes Michael Burke, director of the Downtown Brooklyn Council as saying, "you will see a nice-looking building with beautiful streetscapes."

Meanwhile, when we reported about the new condos here, one commenter noted -- "the people in the toy factory building are getting screwed. they never realized that their views would consist of housing projects and now two towers up to 40 stories. the developer sounds like a real shyster for being so secretive to the buyers at the toy factory. i'm sure he knew all along of his ultimate plans. today, though, it's about taking the money and to hell with anyone else's investments and quality of life."

The developer in question, Ron Hershko, only said "we're pushing it to the next level." Indeed...
