This is the type of house the Toll Brothers have made their fortune on all over the country.
In doing some research on the Toll Brothers I came upon some alarming information about them. Last week, the very same Toll Brothers who want to build the large 577 unit condo development along the Gowanus, made the “Climate Watch” Companies list compiled by a group of leading US investors. The businesses selected to be on this list are companies who have failed to improve their focus and attention to business risks and opportunities from climate changes.
Toll Brothers are joined by Exxon/Mobil, Chevron, CVS, Ultra Petroleum, General Motors, Ford, Bed Bath & Beyond and get this one. WHOLE FOODS!
SO. Are we are supposed to TRUST this developer to take the care to build on an environmentally hazardous swamp land that is chock full of pathogens?! Trust Toll Brothers to build a man-made hill with a 220 car parking garage in it to “fix” its sewage filled flood zone status?!
This is such a no brainer, just why are our elected officials allowing this?
