Eichner’s Crown Heights rezoning delayed once again

Kings County Supreme Court Judge Katherine Levine authorized a temporary restraining order last week, putting a hold on the rezoning process for now.Opponents of the project claim that its two towers, which could top out at more than 30 stories, will cast plant-harming shadows over the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.The lawsuit was brought by a group of activists led by Alicia Boyd, who argued that the virtual hearings violate the city’s rules for conducting its public land use review process. Boyd said the hearings are prohibitive to community members without internet access.ADVERTISEMENTContinuum Company and Eichner did not return requests for comment.Read moreDe Blasio’s Crown Heights flip-flop was no Garden-variety reversalApartment Project Near Brooklyn Botanic Garden Is ShortenedIn stunning reversal, de Blasio opposes Eichner’s Crown Heights towers Tags Full Name* Email Address* Brooklyn Paper first reported the news.This is the second time a rezoning in Brooklyn has been delayed due to concerns over virtual hearings.The city’s plan to rezone 80 blocks in Gowanus was held up after Justice Levine authorized a temporary restraining order in January after opponents lodged a similar complaint regarding virtual hearings. The judge partially lifted the TRO later that month, allowing the city to file its application for the project.In Crown Heights, Eichner is seeking to build two 39-story towers with 1,578 rentals, half of which would be affordable. That plan was nixed after Mayor Bill de Blasio said he would oppose the developer’s proposal, calling it “grossly out of scale with the neighborhood” and would inhibit plant growth at the garden. It was a reversal for de Blasio, who previously supported the project.The City recently reported that the developer is now pitching a project that tops out at 17 stories, but with far fewer affordable apartments. Either way, the rezoning would need to go through the city’s lengthy ULURP process and would need to get approval from the City Council and, ultimately, the mayor.The developer also suggested that it could simply move forward with an as-of-right project, which would have 518 condominiums and no affordable housing. That development would not require going through the land use review process.Contact Keith Larsenlast_img read more

EPL: VAR grabs headlines in Sheffield’s win over West Ham

first_imgOli McBurnie’s goal earned Sheffield United a 1-0 home win over West Ham United but they needed a stoppage-time VAR intervention to secure the points that moved them to fifth place in the Premier League on Friday night.Advertisement Read Also:Chelsea eye West Ham defender in £40m transfer swoopMartin redeemed himself by saving well from Lys Mousset who failed to capitalise on other opportunities before West Ham belatedly began to threaten.Sebastien Haller had a goal ruled out for offside and bounced a header over while Manuel Lanzini’s free kick was well-saved by Dean Henderson who has now kept eight clean sheets this season, the joint most in the Premier League.West Ham’s fans were cheering a precious point in stoppage time, but VAR cut their celebrations short.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 After a dismal opening period, the hosts were far livelier after the break and McBurnie tapped home after a mix-up between West Ham’s substitute keeper David Martin and defender Fabian Balbuena in the 53rd minute.West Ham thought they had equalised in stoppage time when Robert Snodgrass fired home but a VAR check harshly ruled that Declan Rice had handled the ball in the build-up.It was a let-off for Chris Wilder’s side as the ball was headed against the on-running Rice’s arm by a Sheffield’s John Egan before the midfielder played in substitute Snodgrass.“We’re fuming, we’re livid,” Rice said. “It’s tough to take. He knocked the ball into my hand. There was no intention, it’s a real kick in the teeth. I think it’s the thought of every Premier League player, we don’t want to have VAR in the game.”While West Ham, who lost keeper Lukasz Fabianski to injury early on, could feel hard done by, Sheffield United would have been kicking themselves if they had not won after failing to kill off the visitors having taken the lead.“We got a decision but we have had two or three against us this season,” Wilder said. “We dodged a bullet late on but I thought we were in control in the second half.“It’s a huge three points for us.” Promoted ContentPlaying Games For Hours Can Do This To Your Body6 Ridiculous Health Myths That Are Actually True10 Hyper-Realistic 3D Street Art By OdeithCan Playing Too Many Video Games Hurt Your Body?You’ve Only Seen Such Colorful Hairdos In A Handful Of Anime9 Facts You Should Know Before Getting A Tattoo20 Facts That’ll Change Your Perception Of “The Big Bang Theory”The Very Last Bitcoin Will Be Mined Around 2140.

Keeper Martin played a pass out towards Balbuena who appeared to have his feet stuck in concrete, allowing Fleck to nip in before squaring for McBurnie whose shot went under Martin’s body and in.

Jarvis focused on club over country

first_imgWinger Matt Jarvis is concentrating more on a strong finish to his first season at West Ham rather than an England recall. “As long as I continue performing at a high standard consistently we will have to see what happens but I’m just concentrating on making sure I play well for West Ham week in, week out. “If I keep performing as I do hopefully they will be watching Andy (Carroll) and I can get in on the act as well. “I think I’m playing as well and as consistently as I was and I keep playing well and creating chances and get a few goals myself.” The three points earned against struggling Wigan took West Ham back into the top half of the table and Jarvis is pleased with how the season has gone. “I think we can look at it that we had a fantastic start to the season, really put our stamp on it and it got us right up the league,” he added. “We have been able to try and build on that and get as consistent as possible and I think we have shown in the last month or so that we can do it away from home now.” Press Associationcenter_img Jarvis was signed for a club-record fee by Hammers boss Sam Allardyce during last summer after Wolves had been relegated from the Barclays Premier League. The 26-year-old scored his second goal of the season as West Ham ran out 2-0 winners over Wigan on Saturday but said afterwards he is not focusing on trying to add to the one England cap he received in 2011. “I can only do what I do on a Saturday for West Ham,” he said. last_img read more

California Is a Major Solar Player

first_imgCalifornia now has more installed photovoltaic (PV) capacity than a number of European nations as well as Australia, and it sits at the top of the heap in the U.S., according to a new report.The latest U.S. Solar Market Insight Report from GTM Research and the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) ranked California ahead of the United Kingdom, France, Spain, Australia, and Belgium and is the first state in the U.S. to have more than 10,000 megawatts of installed solar capacity, SEIA president and CEO Rhone Resch said in a statement.If California were a nation, it would rank sixth in the world in installed PV capacity, with enough solar to power nearly 2.6 million homes.Of the 718 MW of new capacity installed in the first quarter of the year, the majority, 399 MW, is in utility-scale projects. Another 231 MW is residential and the balance of 88 MW consists of commercial installations. Collectively, the additions amount to an investment of $1.7 billion.“To put the state’s remarkable progress in some context, today California has 10 times more installed solar capacity than the entire nation had in 2007,” Resch said.He attributed the “explosive growth” to public policies such as the federal solar Investment Tax Credit, Renewable Portfolio Standards, and net-metering.Prices for installed residential PV systems dropped 4% year-over-year in the first quarter, and are nearly 50% lower than they were five years ago.“The upswing in residential installations is expected to continue in the foreseeable future, especially in light of a recent report by the California Energy Commission, which shows that more than a quarter of all new homes being built in Southern California are being constructed with solar energy systems,” Resch’s statement added. “Presently, there are 2,226 solar companies at work throughout the state, employing 54,700 Californians — and those numbers are continuing to grow.”After California, the next five states ranked in order of first-quarter installations were Nevada, New York, North Carolina, Massachusetts, and Texas. Other conclusionsThe new Market Insight Report also made these points:Solar installers are looking for ways of combining PV with other technologies and services, including distributed energy storage, load control in the form of smart thermostats or smart home kits, demand response, and electric vehicle charging.The growth of residential PV systems is especially strong, up 76% over the first quarter of 2014 and up 11% from the fourth quarter of 2014.Non-residential PV installations are slipping, down 3% from the first quarter of last year and down 24% from the fourth quarter of last year.State incentives are “less critical” in a handful of states, but in most markets across the U.S. state incentives are still necessary to make residential PV installations economically viable.last_img read more
