Yesterday the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved plans for townhouses on Pearl Street in Dumbo. The LPC sent the plans back to the drawing board in February. Since then, developers Alloy Development reduced the building’s height by a floor. Curbed attended the hearing, where one commissioner said, “I think it’s a little landmark in the making.” According to Curbed, the five townhouses will each have “four bedrooms, three baths, 20-foot parlor floor ceilings, fireplaces, skylit rooms throughout, and roof terraces.” Alloy will begin demolishing the existing garage at the site in a few months. A rendering of the proposed houses can be seen at center right in the photo above.
