Much too large - Carroll Gardens locals decry Oliver House plans

The Brooklyn Paper

Artfully rendered Valentine’s hearts stamped to the big blue construction fence surrounding 360 Smith Street aside, there’s little love for developer William’s Stein’s Oliver House this week.

Concern that a considerable portion of the pedestrian plaza at the corner of Smith Street and 2nd Place will be absorbed into the 48-unit condominium project and also necessitate shutting down the entrance to the F and G trains during construction have done nothing to endear the already contentious project in the eyes of the public.

Some have now taken that frustration and leveled it at City Councilmember Bill de Blasio.

Although responsible for getting problematic architect Robert Scarano booted off the Oliver House project and helping to facilitate a better dialogue between Stein and the community, de Blasio’s critics are slamming him for suggesting a moratorium on a controversial development
