LPC Designates Bank, OKs 30 Henry Street Design


Besides holding a public hearing for the expansion of the Crown Heights landmark district yesterday, the LPC also voted to landmark the Williamsburg branch of the Public National Bank of New York at 47-49 Graham Avenue, between Moore and Varet streets, and approved a new design for the condo planned at 30 Henry Street in Brooklyn Heights. Here’s the writeup on the Public National Bank from its designation report: “The bank, considered one of [architect] Eugene Schoen’s most interesting and intact architectural commissions, was designed in the neo-Classical style and completed in 1923. Designed in the form of a one-story temple, the building is a rare example in New York City of early 20th century Viennese influence… The building, clad in cast-stone, features rusticated columns and corner piers on both of its main facades that framed rectangular and round arched windows, with panels and entrance surrounds featuring a combination of classical and Secessionist ornament.” LPC Spokesperson Elisabeth de Bourbon also reported that a design was approved for 30 Henry Street. The commission voted against a prior iteration of the design last week. We haven’t seen the new renderings yet.
