EDC proposal for Phoenix beverage depot at Pier 11

Last week, the New York city Economic Development Corp. announced a proposed plan to allow Phoenix beverage to relocate to Pier 11 at Atlantic basin. See New York Times article below:

"For Reinvention, Red Hook Follows Its Roots"

While CoWNA supports allowing Phoenix to use Brooklyn maritime resources to reduce the amount of overall truck trips into the city from their current facility at Port Elizabeth, the choice of pier 11 is unfortunate. Within the container port complex, there are much better locations that would place Phoenix and their "1,000s" of delivery trucks with much easier access to the on and off ramps of the BQE and at the foot of Atlantic ave.
