Today the Landmarks Preservation Commission is holding a public meeting, where the LPC will discuss or vote on items not yet decided at previous public hearings. There are two Brooklyn-based items worth noting. First on the agenda, plans to develop five new townhouses along 122-128 Congress Street, along with refurbishing the four existing Italianate townhomes. We spoke with the project architect Morris Adjmi recently, who also worked on the Wythe Hotel. He said that the existing townhouses will be restored to their original design, while the new ones will be slightly more modern, while remaining contextual. He’s said that they’ve worked closely with Landmarks on the new design and the response so far has been positive. The second LPC item is for a new building at 67 Greene Avenue, between Clermont and Adelphi (pictured). Plans for a three-family build have been in place here since 2007, but a rendering never emerged.
