Domino project faces court challenge

From the Brooklyn Paper:

Critics of the $1.5-billion redevelopment of the former Domino Sugar factory into 2,200 units housing sued last week to reverse the rezoning of the waterfront site.

The suit, filed in State Supreme Court by the Williamsburg Community Preservation Coalition, argues that the City Council, Department of City Planning, and the project’s developer, Community Preservation Resources Corporation, failed to conduct the required thorough environmental review of the project.

The 34-page lawsuit contends that the review “failed to take a hard look at the adverse environmental impacts of the project,” including its deliterious effect on traffic, nearby schools and subway lines, and publicly accessible open space.

What I can't understand is with the multitude of multi unit residential projects stalled across the city, what developer?, what bank?,in their right minds get involved with a monstrosity like this?
