Landmarks praised BKSK Architects for its “contextual” design for a mixed-use building to replace a gas station at 112 Atlantic Avenue in Cobble Hill, but asked the architects to scale down the windows, particularly on the side of the building on Henry Street, and reduce the bulkhead on the roof. Only one attendee at the meeting Tuesday spoke in favor of the building as it was, and the Cobble Heights Association and others spoke against it, New York YIMBY and The Brooklyn Eagle reported.
The building’s “large, industrial-looking windows…might be more appropriate in Red Hook,” said Barbara Zay of the Historic Districts Council, according to YIMBY. Click through to YIMBY to see the full presentation.
As you may recall, Community Board 6 rejected the proposal last month.
