27 Cranberry Street, the 25-by-100 lot that recently sold for $1,500,000 (to developer Louis Greco!), is now going through the design phase. The Brooklyn Eagle dishes on the modern design: Subject to approval from the LPC, it’ll be a four-story single family home with a mostly glass facade and a stoop. An underground squash court and pool are also planned. The CB2 Land Use Committee has given its approval, but the LPC hearing date was laid over from November 9th. The Brooklyn Heights Association expressed its concern over the width of the home and the glass facade. According to the Brooklyn Eagle, “The architect said the design is contemporary and not intended to imitate its neighbors. Although much limestone will be included, the style will differ.” We’ll see what the LPC thinks. In the meantime, we’ll trade our first-born for a rendering!
