save-the-view-sketchTo the disappointment of developers, a Brooklyn judge on Monday extended a partial Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) on the Pierhouse development at Pier 1 in Brooklyn Bridge Park.

State Supreme Court Justice Lawrence Knipel extended the TRO on the penthouse of “Parcel B,” the shorter section of the project, pending his decision on a lawsuit filed by the preservationist group Save the View Now (STVN).

After hearing extensive arguments from attorneys representing Brooklyn Bridge Park, developer Toll Brothers and plaintiffs Save the View Now, Justice Knipel told the packed courthouse that he hoped to render a decision within 45 days. “You won’t be waiting long,” he promised.
