Ratner, Extell Bids Reveal Radically Different Visions for Brooklyn, NY

From RISMedia:

"This plan couldn't be more different than Bruce Ratner's," said DDDb's Goldstein. "It respects the existing communities, doesn't rip off taxpayers, doesn't displace residents and businesses, and is much more within the context of the surrounding neighborhoods."

"In addition, Extell is offering to go through the inclusive and multi-leveled city land use review process (ULURP), which means that—far from being a backroom sweetheart deal, like Bruce Ratner wants—Extell's proposal would have real community input, oversight by Community Boards and City Planning, and be voted on by our City Council."
