Williamsburg waterfront site

Recently the location was put up for sale for $210 million.
Isack Rosenberg along with his brother Abraham are developing the Rose Plaza. Their plan of constructing apartments has face several oppositions along the way. Isack, as a developer, was criticized for their earlier plan to include 154 affordable housing units. It was said that the number is much lesser in comparison to the total 801 planned apartments. Similarly, they were criticized for not including the three bed rooms, however, the developers steered clear of these criticism by making changes in the original plan and hence continuing with development.
Certified Lumber Warehouse
Isack Rosenberg is the owner of the certified lumber warehouse which has been successfully in business for quite long and is one of the income sources of Isack Rosenberg.
Isack Rosenberg has dealt in such large scale development for the first time in case of Rose building and the experience has not been a pleasant one so far. Earlier he built warehouse 11, that bankrupted Isack, which had 120 units condos, however, it is very small in comparison to the 800 units Rose building.
