If you have a historic building or neighborhood that you think is worthy of local designation but aren't sure how to start the process, the Historic Districts Council is offering some tips and tools as part of their Summer 2021 Preservation School.
Located at 200 Montague Street, near the corner of Court Street in the Borough Hall Skyscraper Historic District, the building has currently reached 10 stories.
The Land Use Committee of Community Board 2 said the proposed project is too big and encroaches on the historic district.
The apartments will be all one- and two-bedrooms with private balconies and 30 percent of them will be set aside as affordable.
This is the third time that the architects, Elizabeth Pratt and David Black of Pratt + Black Architects, have been in front of the commission with a design for the project.
After receiving more than 300 letters against the development, LPC commissioners Tuesday unanimously approved a new building that will replace open space around the landmarked Hebron School.
The architect made three major changes to the modern structure -- part of a bigger project to restore and convert a brownstone to condos -- in response to concerns from LPC commissioners at a prior hearing.
The plaque was presented as a gift from King Juan Carlos of Spain in 1976 to commemorate the Spanish martyrs who died fighting for the United States.
Despite massive public opposition to the development on a landmarked site, LPC commissioners said the design is on the right track but needs tweaking.
The proposed plan is to restore the prominent corner townhouse across the street from Fort Greene Park, remove a structurally damaged garage behind the townhouse and erect a modern carriage house in its place.
