The Landmarks Preservation Commission has approved developer Shelly Listokin’s plans to rebuild the back facade and add two glass floors to the top of the landmarked building at 200 Water Street, The Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported. Aufgang Architects designed the new plans for the former Watchtower building, which received approval from the LPC on Tuesday.
As we reported in September, Listokin’s Urban Realty Partners plans to create 15 apartments in the building and convert it to condos. The Brillo Manufacturing Co. “daylight factory” and warehouse was built in 1950 and designed by Sydney Goldstone. Using an LLC, Listokin bought the Water Street building along with neighboring lots 173 and 177 Front Street for $30,600,000 in March.
At 177 Front Street, Aufgang has already filed a plan exam (which was disapproved) for a 12-story apartment, 105-unit building with ground floor commercial space. That property is outside of the historic district and won’t require landmarks approval.
