Community Board Two will vote on whether or not to landmark the 88th Precinct building in Clinton Hill at its general meeting this Wednesday. They have said in the past they support landmarking the 120-year-old Romanesque Revival structure at 298 Classon only if a new home is built for the 88th Precinct.
“The police department has been looking for a new location for at least the last 14 years but could never find a space that’s adequate,” board member Lawrence Whiteside told DNAinfo last month. “If we landmark it now then they will be even more limited in their ability to do anything with it.”
The executive committee will also review the proposed adaptive reuse of the landmarked Empire Stores warehouses in Brooklyn Bridge Park. The meeting’s crowded agenda also includes votes on the Downtown Brooklyn Cultural District Streetscape Plan and the redesign of Fowler Square.
