Landmarked Carlton Houses Now in Braces


    The houses at 578 Carlton, right, and 580 Carlton, left, in Prospect Heights as they looked Tuesday. You may remember the sad story: Renovations at 580 caused a partial collapse at 578, where an extension had to be demo’d. The house at 580 was reduced to a mere facade. There is now a full vacate order at 578. An application to build a new two-story addition and reconfigure the interior and redo the facade at 578 was disapproved Monday but is listed as pending. The architect is Rachel Frankel, known for historic-style new buildings. She is also handling the rehabilitation of 580, where plans have already been approved.
