Some news popped up on the upcoming Landmarks Preservation Commission agenda about the Carlton Mews Church located at 232 Adelphi Street. The owners are going to the LPC with this proposal: ” construct additions, alter the facades, roofs, and yards, replace windows, and install a ramp.” The Gothic Revival church sat deteriorating for years before its new owners took care of structural repairs last year. After repairs started up in November of 2011, no news came up about the future use of the church. The owners have not applied for any permits to convert the church to residential use. The connected development site, the Carlton Mews Townhouse Project, has continued with construction after an accident last fall. Construction workers were conducting interior work at the church when we stopped by this morning. The townhouse project and the church each have different owners.
