From the NY Post:
A mini-city is brewing at an old beer factory in Bushwick.
Developer Read Property Group is asking the city to approve the building of 947 apartments and townhouses where the Rheingold Brewery once stood.
The site is just blocks away from the proposed "Broadway Triangle" project. If both developments win approval, it would pave the way for an additional 2,842 homes in the hardscrabble neighborhood that has seen a revitalization in recent years.
Some critics doubt all the units will sell, given the housing glut, and complain the city is adding too many residents without expanding services.
"We call it putting 20 pounds of s--t in a 10-pound bag," said activist Phil DePaolo. "This is just going to bring more people, more cars, more needs on sanitation, police, fire, library, schools."
Yeah...you noticed that's how Bloomberg does things, too, huh? More brownfields for brown skins with stairways to heaven. Yippee!
