SIVE, PAGET 3 RIESEL P.C. David Paget Direct Dial: (646) 378-7244 November 17, 2017 Hon. Carmen Victoria St. New York State Supreme Court 80 Centre Street Room 308 New York, NY 10013 Re: Brooklyn Heights Ass'n v. Brooklyn Bridge Park Corp. et al., Index No. 155641/2016 Dear Justice St. George: We write to provide an update conceming an issue raised by counsel for Petitioner Brooklyn Heights Association (“BHA”) for the first time at oral argument on November 15, 2017, relating to the request for proposals (“RFP”) for the renovation and lease of the upper floors of 334 Furman Street. As noted by BHA, that RFP had identified Empire State Development Corporation (“ESD”) as the lead agency for the 334 Furman Street project’s environmental review. That description was in error, as the sole agency with discretionary authority over the 334 Furman Street project, the Brooklyn Bridge Park Corporation (“BBP”), not ESD, is the lead agen for that project’s em ynmental review. This correction was memorialized in a notice that is being provided to all parties who responded to or attended the information session for the 334 Furman Street REP. A copy of that notice is attached hereto. Sees .
