325 Apartments to be Built on Nuhart Site

Rendering of 22 Clay St. Via the Real Deal

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.

    The developer will unearth buried toxins, which will inevitably be done cheaply and unsafely.

    These toxins will be airborn, surely as dust but also as fumes, and people like us, living close by, with young children, already exposed to all the unknown dust and effects of the scale of construction that is already happening all along West Street, will be here exposed to something with the rare distinction of being acknowledged as toxic.

    Not to mention the people who would unknowingly live there, on top of contamination that can never fully be mitigated.
