Representatives of the planned 80 Flatbush high-rise development didn’t show up at a meeting with members of the Brooklyn Bears’ Rockwell Garden who are concerned about how shadows cast by the building would affect the amount of sunlight in their growing space, according to the Brooklyn Paper.

The real estate project, which is being developed by Alloy Development, would include two towers of 74 and 34 stories that are planned to rise diagonally across the garden, which is bordered by Rockwell Place and Flatbush and Lafayette avenues. Some of the gardeners speculated that the builder backed out of the meeting, which took place on April 14, after the Brooklyn Bears publicized it with an announcement. Alloy spokesperson James Yolles denied that the firm backed out of the meeting, saying the get-together merely didn’t work out and that company execs are trying to set a new time and place to discuss the issue with the gardeners, the Brooklyn Paper reported.
