River Street Partners LLC, is seeking a number of special permits and zoning amendments for the River Ring waterfront development in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The list includes zoning text amendments, a zoning map amendment, large-scale general development special permits, and a landfill action. It also includes waterfront authorizations and certification. If approved, the River Ring development by Two Trees Management Company would see the creation of a large waterfront park that reaches out into the East River. It would also create two towers, one of which would stand up to 710 feet tall. The project would add 1,050 residential units (including 263 affordable units) to the area.
