Skyscraper Historic District Rubber Stamped in Brooklyn
Despite the Commission's unanimity, some property owners in the area were less pleased, reports Marlon Bishop:
"In January, several real estate holding companies and business organizations, including the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce, signed onto a letter asking that the landmarks commission reconsider a vote to approve the district."
The opposition felt that added regulations would impede growth. The new district includes a number of art deco towers and a few smaller buildings.
