Pratt Institute architect Brent Porter and his students have designed a plan for Admiral’s Row that would involve preserving the 10 old buildings and also constructing a supermarket and a parking lot. The design would result in the restoration of the houses for commercial and community use, and put a supermarketâ€”one that’s smaller than the one the city wantsâ€”on old parade grounds. The proposal, which comes in advance of Tuesday evening’s public meeting at Borough Hall and days after Councilmember Letitia James expressed a willingness to preserve at least some of the buildings, does not come with a price tag.
