Overview

Arrow Linen on Prospect Ave between Prospect Park West and 8th Ave has applied to NYC to rezone their property to allow for 13-story luxury towers to be built. This would be more than twice as tall as any other building in the area, and does not respect the scale of our neighborhood. There is no developer and no actual plan in place. Arrow Linen’s only goal is to sell its property to a developer for maximum profit and leave.

Arrow Linen has hired lobbyists and lawyers, and is using their money and influence to push for the approval of this inappropriate zoning change.

If Arrow Linen gets their way, then all of Windsor Terrace and South Slope are at risk of greedy developers buying properties and doing the same.

We want affordable housing. We do not want high-priced high-rises. We are organizing Windsor Terrace and South Slope to fight for a solution that creates housing that works in our neighborhood. We have been meeting with our elected officials to share feedback from our neighbors and make our goals clear.
