River Ring Moves Forward with City Planning Commission Approval, City Council Hearing

Two Trees’ massive new waterfront development, River Ring, received a thumbs-up from the City Planning Commission this week immediately before heading to the City Council for a public hearing.

The CPC voted unanimously to approve the project on Wednesday, setting the stage for the council’s hearing on Thursday morning and a vote sometime before Jan. 6, the end of the council’s 50-day deadline under the city’s Uniform Land Use Review Process.

In their report, the commission said they felt the proposed project fills a need for more housing in Williamsburg, one of the city’s fastest-growing neighborhoods, and that the change from a commercial to residential zoning code is in line with the 2005 rezoning. The lot was not included in that rezoning because it was still an active industrial site owned by Con Edison at the time.
