Restoration Work Underway on Weir Greenhouse Building at 750 Fifth Avenue, Greenwood Heights

In July 2015, the Landmarks Preservation Commission rejected a proposal by Green-Wood Cemetery to restore the Weir Greenhouse and build an adjacent three-story visitor center at 750 Fifth Avenue, located on the corner of 25th Street in Greenwood Heights. Later that year, the LPC approved restoration work, designed by Page Ayres Crowley Architects, on only the existing greenhouse structure. Construction is now underway on the 40-foot-tall structure, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported.

Restoration & Three-Story Addition Planned For Weir Greenhouse At 750 Fifth Avenue, Greenwood

Green-Wood Cemetery is planning to restore the landmarked Weir Greenhouse building at 750 5th Avenue and wants to construct a connected three-story office building for the nonprofit’s uses. Page Ayres Cowley is designing the project, and the landmarked structure was originally designed by Mercein Thomas in the 1880’s, but altered in 1895 by George Curtis Gillespie, according to Brownstoner. The LPC’s approval is required, and an adjacent two-story structure must be demolished.
