In March, the Empire State Development Corporation (ESD) withheld approval for the two-tower, mixed-income residential project at Pier 6 in Brooklyn Bridge Park, located in southern Brooklyn Heights. The city selected RAL Development and Oliver Realty Group, with ODA New York as the architect, to develop a 29-story, 192-unit condominium building and a 14-story, 147-unit mixed-use rental building with 117 below-market-rate apartments, a preschool, a 930-square-foot retail component, and 1,500-square-foot community facility. Now, the ESD is withdrawing from the project, entirely over concerns regarding ties between the developers and the administration of Mayor Bill de Blasio, Politico New York reports.

TG Nickel & Associates is the general contractor for the project, which Handel Architects designed as a slender stack of floor-to-ceiling windows set within a grid of grey and dark brown brick. Completion is expected in 2017.
