Last night at Community Board 2’s Land Use Committee Meeting, Urban Pioneering presented a rendering for a 4-story, 2-family town home at 414 Waverly Avenue between Gates and Greene. (It’s the house on the left. A parking lot is currently there.) The design, which the developer has already been working with the Landmarks Committee for a few months, is a carriage house style, and members of the board appreciated that the 4th floor would be a lighter color than the rest of the building, as well as set back 15 feet. The entire building would be 50 feet deep on a 100 foot deep lot. The Land Use Committee gave its stamp of approval on the spot. Looks pretty tasteful, don’t you agree? GMAP
