One Less Stalled Development in Downtown Brooklyn

City Point, the major development proposed for Albee Square in Downtown Brooklyn, has received its preliminary allocation of $20 million in triple-tax exempt bonds from the federal stimulus program and will restart construction in early spring, according to the Brooklyn Eagle.

According to NYC's EDC, the bonds will be issued on Feb. 17, 2010. (The project was originally slated to be completed in 2010.)

That makes one less stalled development in Brooklyn, Land of the Frozen Construction Project.

The complex will now be built in two phases, according to the Observer.
