Teardown Application In Front of LPC


    One of the cases before the Landmarks Preservation Commission on Tuesday night was 173 St. James Place in Clinton Hill. Since being damaged by a fire (anyone know when?), it’s been sitting vacant. The owner has applied to demolish the existing 2-story 1850 house (not sure if that includes the garage) and replace it with a large 4-story building. It would be interesting to see the plans for the new structure. Does anyone know how the LPC ruled on this? Is this really not salvageable or is this just about the money to be made off a larger building? GMAP
