Here’s an interesting project in the works at 437 Henry Street in the Cobble Hill Historic District that we caught wind of via the Aug. 7 Landmarks Preservation Commission agenda: “A walled garden space. Application is to demolish the wall, construct a new building and a carriage house, and modify a fence.” The vacant lot in question is the one next to the double-wide mansion (and former convent) at 439-441 Henry Street. The current owner bought the entire 100-by-200-foot property at the corner of Henry and Kane Streets in January 2011 for $5.4 million and is currently subdividing the mansion into apartments. The design is by CWB Architects, the same folks who are designing the Strong Place Townhouses next door on Kane Street. If you are interested in the proposal, the architects will present at Community Board Six’s Land Use Committee tonight at 380 Henry Street at 6 pm in advance of the Aug. 7 meeting at LPC.
