The Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) has unanimously approved an expansion within Packer Collegiate Institute’s historic Brooklyn Heights campus. Designed by PBDW Architects, plans include the construction of a large addition to an existing garden house at 170 Joralemon Street.
New York City-based architecture firm Beyer Blinder Belle has returned to the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission with revised proposals to construct a new high-rise development within Brooklyn’s Borough Hall Skyscraper Historic District. The building was formerly referred to as 192 Montague Street, but has been presented to the commission on the second try as 200 Montague Street.
One Clinton Street aka 280 Cadman Plaza West recently topped out at 36 stories over Brooklyn Heights. The mixed-use residential building is being designed by Marvel Architects and developed by Hudson Companies. The 295,000-square-foot project will include 134 residential units and One Clinton Street Library, a new public library that is replacing the former Brooklyn Heights Library. The tower is situated on a triangular-shaped plot at the confluence of Clinton Street, Tillary Street, and Cadman Plaza West. At 409 feet, it is currently the tallest structure in the neighborhood.
Permits have been filed for a 20-story mixed-use building at 192 Montague Street in Brooklyn Heights, Brooklyn. Located between Clinton Street and Borough Hall in the Borough Hall Skyscraper Historic District, the development went before the Landmark Preservation Commission last month as reported by YIMBY. Both Brooklyn Borough Hall and Columbus Park Plaza are both just steps away. Also conveniently located is a major transit hub, with access to the 2, 3, 4, 5, and R subway trains. The Cayre Group is listed as the owner behind the applications.
The existing four-story building at 200 Montague Street, aka 192 Montague Street, will make way for a new 20-story Beyer Blinder Belle-designed structure. The 10,000-square foot site sits directly adjacent to 75 Livingston Street, aka 16 Court Street. Because the project is among the Borough Hall Skyscraper Historic District in Brooklyn Heights, plans for the new development will have to be approved by the Landmark Preservation Commission. The scheduled review date is set for March 5, 2019. James M. Patterson of Ancora Engineering is listed as the applicant of record.
