Fortis' Plans for Cobble Hill's LICH Site

 Developer Fortis Property Group presented its plans for the site of the former Long Island College Hospital (LICH) at a packed meeting of the Cobble Hill Association (CHA) on Monday.

40, 30 and 20 story towers are envisioned for sleepy Cobble Hill, as well as some lower-rise residential and a retail pedestrian mall on Pacific Street.

Judging from the hisses, however, many thought the towers and retail were out of character for the neighborhood.

Many were "still seething about the loss of their historic hospital after a wrenching two-year battle," the Brooklyn Eagle reports.

See the Eagle for renderings of the project and full details.
