When will they start construction on the Community Parks Building at Bushwick Inlet Park?

While it was initially expected that construction on Phase Two of the Bushwick Inlet Park development would begin in the spring, as often happens with construction projects, there has been a holdup gumming the works.

Apparently the issue was getting the NYC Comptroller’s office to OK the contractor on the job.  That’s apparently finally happened but it’s caused a 3 month delay.

The new hope is that we’ll be seeing a groundbreaking for the Community and Parks building at North 9th and Kent Avenue with the sloped green roof either in late June or early July of 2010.

After that construction should take approximately 18 months.  Look for the new building’s completion around November of 2011.
