Nothing says toxic development quite like a state-level superfund site. But, Yoel Goldman, of All Year Management, a firm that toped Stabilizing NYC’s list of the city’s worst landlords, is moving forward with a plan to demolish the former Nuhart Plastics factory and build two new six-story apartment buildings at 22 and 26 Clay Street.
Together, the two buildings will bring 325 new apartments to Greenpoint. Additionally, 6,000 square feet at 22 Clay Street will be set aside for commercial space.
This is not the first time that major developers have tried to build on land near the Nuhart site that is considered highly-contaminated. In June, the neighborhood organization Neighbors Allied for Good Growth lodged a petition against Greenpoint Landing’s proposed K-8 school, which is slated to be built across from the factory space.
