Carmelo Anthony

Carmelo Anthony has millions of dollars invested in a Brooklyn real estate redevelopment. But one local activist is begging him to reconsider his plans.

The 32-year-old NY Knickerbockers superstar is part of an investment group that plans to redevelop the old Bedford-Union Armory in the Crown Heights area of Brooklyn, NY.

The Slate Property Group has plans to build expensive condos on the site which activists say will be a "terrible deal for New Yorkers".

Anthony will personally back the funding of a sports center at the site that will include a basketball court and swimming pool.

But activist Bertha Lewis is disappointed in Anthony's involvement in the plans.

“This development is not good for Crown Heights, and it’s not good for Brooklyn. Your name should not be associated with such a terrible deal for New Yorkers,” Lewis wrote in a letter to 'Melo from the Black Institute and New York Communities for Change.

Lewis points out that half the apartments designated as "affordable housing" will still be too expensive for local residents to afford.

Rents in the New York area have soared over the last decade. If it weren't for rent control and government subsidized housing, most native New Yorkers would be forced to move out of the city.

“While you may have added your name in in hopes that this will be a great asset for the local community, it will not,” Lewis wrote to Anthony, who is with the US mens basketball team at the Rio Olympics. “This public land has the potential of creating much-needed affordable housing for local residents who are rent burdened, or for the Crown Heights residents who have already been displaced due to rents that have been rising exponentially."

Lewis added that the condo redevelopment will "further exacerbate the gentrification of Crown Heights".

    Idk what you're saying? Slow day meaning that's why I'm posting here vs there? Is that supposed to be a read? As you once poetically stated, "try again Fender"??

  • Taylordanes

    It is really crazy how NY is pushing folks out due to gentrification. It is really bad. Harlem is not Harlem anymore even. White folk coming in and pushing people farther uptown. New developments and lofts everywhere..A mess and yes BK is having the same issues

  • LibraGirlonly

    Well to be honest he should be aware of what's going on and if it will push black people out of the neighborhood before he signs on the dotted line unless he wants to sell his soul. I don't know????

  • http://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    Hey better investment in some Five Guys, like Gilbert Arenas.
    Ain't nobody complaining about having a Five Guys.

  • luVn_liFe…

    Of course he should be aware. Im SURE MELO isn't the developer NOR the main investor... Truly this project isn't going to stop if MELO pulls his wittle name out,amiright?

  • luVn_liFe…

    In the mean time a white man is scaling Trump Tower w/backpack and other unknown equipment and the police haven't shot him down.

    Lolol Happy birthday?? I'm out, your blog mistress done hurt my feelings???

  • MissHarlem

    The rent here is a mortgage elsewhere. Makes no fckn sense. Gentrification is real and I'm tired of being pushed out ?

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    Thank you, love! Don't leave. I understand how you feel, but you can't change others. All you can change is your reaction to them.

    I hope you're having a fabulous hump day. Now get to humping!

  • LibraGirlonly

    I said the same thing I'm glad to know I wasn't off the mark.

  • LibraGirlonly

    Sure but the white folks are going to do what they do. Mello on the other hand can tell them to kick rocks.

  • luVn_liFe…

    Funny folks are small mad at MELO and he's only backing/funding the sports facility.. However NOONE is big mad at Slate the big developer that consist of

    Martin Nussbaum, Principal

    David Schwartz, Principal

    Steven Figari, Managing Director

    Michael Zampetti, Managing Director

    Boris Katsman, Chief Financial Officer

    Steve Krasman, Vice President/Legal Counsel.
    How many letters has Bertha wrote to them or the city that gave them the 99yr land lease?

  • 88

    So you say Black Lives Matter but at the same time you plotting with white devils to kick Black familes out of their homes smdh.

  • Nancy Drew is Ab Fab!

    but won't the plans still go forward even without Melo's investment?

  • PrettyMe

    *lays backhand across forehead* lemme go lay down,Im tyhad.

    Back in July rapper T.I. and his business partner were sued by employees
    at his Atlanta restaurant Scales 925 over a wage dispute.

    Apparently the employees were the only ones not getting paid...

    According to reports sheriffs deputies are serving an eviction notice on T.I.'s downtown Atlanta restaurant as we speak.

    The landlord tells WSBTV T.I. hasn't paid his rent in months and owes over $1 million.

    There is "frozen yogurt" everywhere, but not any Italian Ice or custard.
    Damn sure no Gelatos.

    I don't get frozen yogurt any way, it's just ice cream to me.

    This is why everyone's moving to Bronx. White people are starting to take over the ghetto's all across Brooklyn. They are not welcomed there and don't even bother interacting with the people in the neighborhood. They only deal with their fellow dog walking parasitic krackers. I loathe them and I wish they'd go back to where ever they came from.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    They tried it in Oakland.. renamed a few streets as the "Temsical" or something like that. It was suppose to be up and coming but, the cops couldn't clean the streets and there is not enough money to buy out the owners of the buildings and liquor stores. They will find a way though I'm sure.

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    If you could've seen my replies prior to the block implementation on Disqus... It was like the zoo. I know my block list is long, because every site I visit has resident antagonists who made it a point to set their sights on me. In the spirit of letting folks gone on with that bullisht, rather than react to them any further, I simply blocked them - most of them being preemptive blocks. Lol.

    Folks can say, "It's just a blog. It's not that serious." But when people are wishing you and your family members death, harm, slandering and defaming you, that's where I draw the line.

  • the guest

    I've read the Brooklyn Armory had been for many years a men's shelter for homeless men and men getting out of prison. That huge building was undesirable by that city for ages. So gentrification must be very strong there for that site to become condos. That's a huge piece of real estate to go undeveloped for that long.

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    I've never grocery shopped on Amazon. I have a local grocery delivery that I order from. I'm burnt out on most of the stores I'm accustomed to patronizing, so I'm heading to other areas, still close, but different. I need a change of scenery and products.

    I'm hoping to try a new restaurant tomorrow. It's so hot out here, I only want deli type of food - ready-to-eat salads, sandwiches and fruit.

    I just ordered 2 cases of coconut water from Jet.com. I ordered a case of Red Bull from them recently. They were really cost and time efficient.

    So true about frozen yogurt tasting like ice cream. We have fro yo and razzie fresh places popping up everywhere..

    There's a Jet.com code that is good for $10 each from 3 orders, for anyone who is interested. You have to order $35 worth of merch. But shipping is free and your order should arrive in 2-days.

    The code is 3XTENEXTRA. Enter at checkout. Enjoy!

  • JustB

    I personally cant see how this is coming for Melo...I see it as a public service to him and allowing him to see the peoples point of view...while he means well he needs to realize that his people will not gain from this venture.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    That's a lot of damn pop tarts for that price. What's wrong with them? Lol

  • Mel

    Better take it up up with Dumblasio I'm sure he had to sign off on the development . I bet some Jews have something to do with this condo being built tho they run NY . All of them makes "$213" a week so they can get every last drop of public assistance there is meanwhile the reg folks can't eem get $1 in foodstamps unless u can prove Jesus is real

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    Lol. I don't think there's anything wrong with them. TBH, a lot of manufacturers are literally giving food away. The supply exceeds the demand in many cases.

    That's a great deal for ladies and gents who lift. When they have their cheat days, they eat like pigs.

    I'm all for creating homes where there are none; however, I take issue when cities allow for poor people to be driven out of what they can afford to make way for people financially better off.

    Hopped on it like a frog to a fly. While we were out spending FEMA money they were buying property. But right its too early for this..

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    You're right. The project probably will. Melo just praised Jordan for coming out to help a cause. Many said the same thing, why bother Jordan for something that's going to continue with or without him? I think people just want to see what you support for the better cause.

    Why is malika on there anyway?

    Pittsburgh has already lost that battle. They're building condos in Oakland, East Liberty, Highland Park etc., that will be like $2500/month. Gentrification is real. I just don't understand how they can get away with these sky high rents all awhile keeping wages stagnant. This is why I'm all for the minimum wage to be $15/HR because wage increase or not, these mfer are going to keep increasing the rent and taxes regardless. They won't be happy until there is no middle class.

    What you said is so true!!!! I live outside the city now.. I lived in Highland Park for 7 years when it w as time to move because I needed more space, I couldn't afford anything in that area that was in good condition and decent to live in.. I am from the Hill district originally. Its so different now at least they have folks monitoring and making sure "they" don't take over.. I can't say the samr for East lib, Homewood, and Larimer... Its a done deal.. smh

    They are the biggest scam artists around. They have a gazillion kids and live off the dole. One of my Jewish coworkers, whom I love dearly, has 6 kids, owns a million dollar brownstone in Brooklyn, and his federal student loan repayment plan is $0/month although both he and his wife work. Smh!

    Girl, that pea-brained troll bish tried it.

    *sprays Lysol on that rancid azz font* ??

  • SameoleJ

    They were there first!! It became unaffordable when the city allowed taxes to be raised to above the incomes of the residents. This was done with the full intention of forcing them out. A lot of these residential areas that are being taken over, are lived in by homeowners. Most have paid for their homes already and are retired and on a fixed income....how is this fair?

  • Fabulousbrownme

    I know own the student loan people aren't section 8 lol. I just used that as an example of how they are able to get away with things.

    Exactly, because its still going to be built. With his name,or not. He agreed to it, because of the basketball court, and and sport center being built. He will also make money, so maybe he will use that money to build more things in the community.

  • Hmmm~?

    What exactly does his support of BLM have to do with this article? Did anyone mention anything about his political views? No. In fact, his support of this redevelopment directly contradicts with the ideology of BLM, as it makes it harder for people living in the (predominantly black) area to find affordable housing (as clearly mentioned in the article). Can you people actually think before making comments like this?

  • Hmmm~?

    It doesn't matter what portion of it he's funding, the fact that his name is attached to the project will likely bring in more funding from other investors. And I'm quite sure that all of those people you listed have received emails as well. Just because it's not explicitly listed in this article does not mean it didn't happen. Again, think before you make comments like this.
