An extensive interior and exterior reno is planned for the two adjoining homes at 121-23 Fort Greene Place, between Lafayette Avenue and Hanson Place. The properties were a HOTD in March, when they were asking $2,724,000. At the time, we had this opinion: “doesn’t sound like a reach to us, but we suppose it’ll all turn on how much work needs to be done.” (It doesn’t look like the sale has come through on public records yet.) On Wednesday Barrett Design, the folks behind the conversion of 25 Carroll, presented a plan to CB2’s land use committee to restore the front facades, remove both rear extensions and construct a new full-width extension, as well as add a one-story, full-width rooftop addition. Notably, each building will get its stoop back, as per the design in the original tax photo. The interiors, which are described as being in “pretty poor condition,” will be renovated as well. When all is said and done, the properties will be combined to form a seven-unit building. The committee approved the designs, which will also need to be OK’d by the LPC.
