Sunset Park Mega Development

Brooklyn Paper excerpt -

A consortium of investors aims to build a shopping mall, a hotel, two residential towers, and an office building on the corner of Eighth Avenue and 62nd Street. At a Nov. 5 meeting of the local community board’s land use committee, the project’s architect, Raymond Chan, said his clients are willing to set aside space for a public school. Board members said the additional desks would be a boon for the crowded school district.

“We’ve been looking for school sites desperately,” said education committee chairman Bob Hudock. “They are very needed, especially in that neighborhood.”
