Greenpoint Recession Watch: Pencil Factory Lofts Gets Served
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic, Recession
I have been queried by a number of people lately about the status of the Pencil Factory Lofts (as seen above). Some of you might remember this site has been troubled this year: among other things, work was stalled back in May and a new construction company was purportedly brought in to complete it. Well, long story made short, it would appear that work has halted once again. Exactly why, I do not know. When will it resume, you ask? That’s anyone’s guess. But taking into account what I found at their former sales office this afternoon I’d hazard to say the prognosis isn’t looking very good.
