WILLIAMSBURG - A Williamsburg development project approved by the Department of City Planning has some residents and elected leaders voicing concerns.
The new development, to be built near Division and Kent avenues, is expected to include 800 apartments and public green space along the Williamsburg waterfront. The 3.7-acre site was originally zoned for manufacturing.
Detractors say the project has not set aside enough units for affordable housing. The plan currently calls for 160 apartments to be affordable.
