At a hearing before the City Council Land Use Committee’s Zoning Subcommittee today, Councilman Bill DeBlasio announced that he had reversed his earlier decision to support developer Two Trees’ request for a variance from the 50′ height limit that applies within the Cobble Hill Historic District. Two Trees sought the variance to allow it to build a 60′ high apartment building facing Atlantic Avenue on the space now occupied by a parking lot next to the bank building soon to be occupied by Trader Joe’s. DeBlasio said he would now recommend that the full Land Use Committee vote against granting the variance.
