Approval of Planned 1,050-unit River Ring Project on Williamsburg Waterfront Imminent

Brooklyn-based developer Two Trees has reached an agreement with Brooklyn City Council member Steven Levin which “ensures approval” of the developer’s 1,050-unit mega-project dubbed River Ring. As a result of the agreement, more than 150 units of senior housing within the community district will be funded, and $1.7 million will go towards neighborhood environmental improvements. The recent announcement brings a closure to the city’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) process.
