At the Fort Greene Association's November 2016 open meeting, "Fort Greene & NYC Neighbors Look to the Future," representatives from Downtown Brooklyn Partnership and New Yorkers for a Human-Scale City discussed some of the pros and cons of high-rise development in Downtown Brooklyn.

The purpose of the Nov. 13, 2017 meeting is to continue this discussion as it relates to this new proposal for 80 Flatbush Avenue - a 74-story building on a full block site bordering Flatbush, Schermerhorn, State and Third Aves. Concerns include the scale of the project as it abuts a low-rise brownstone neighborhood, the blocking of sight lines of the Williamsburgh Clock Tower, and adverse environmental impacts.
