Edge Developer Comes a Calling
this is the view that goes away soon
We won't bore you with the details, but suffice it to say, after a year of wondering and worrying, an agent of our worst nightmare - Douglaston Development - yes, the folks who promise to make our lives a living nightmare of ceaseless pile driving, round-the-clock truck idling, and permanent vista destruction, showed up unannounced in our office today.
The folks bringing Williamsburg's "The Edge" had advertised a Spring 2006 groundbreaking; but aside from a week or two of exploratory pile-driving, we were spared from real construction. We'd convinced ourselves that the recently-flaccid condo and co-op market had spooked our new neighbors into a catatonic state of wait-and-see. But the Grim Reaper came a callin' today.
Bottom line, according to a Douglaston rep named Leah:
- the project will break ground in February
- all four towers will be built immediately; no phased-in construction nonsense like nextdoor at Northside Piers
- the units will be condos
- the sales office will be at the corner of Kent Avenue and North 6th
Imnotsayin may be looking for new digs very soon...
