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.
Despite massive public opposition to the development on a landmarked site, LPC commissioners said the design is on the right track but needs tweaking.
Discussion among the commissioners was long and detailed, laying out a series of objections to the proposal.
Forty-three people provided testimony at the public hearing, with all but one speaking against the proposed development.
Preservation group Historic Districts Council has joined the opposition to a proposed development at Crown Heights' Hebron Seventh Day Adventist School.
At a community board meeting Thursday, roughly 30 people spoke -- a combination of concerned residents, congregation members and elected officials.
