Today, the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) is scheduled to review proposals to construct a two-story rear extension at 122 Gates Avenue in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn.

The proposed scope of work includes a full-width rear yard extension on the garden and parlor floors. The façade of the enclosed extension will comprise red brick masonry that matches the existing rear façade and large glass panels with black metal frames. A new door on the second floor will open out to a rooftop terrace. A discreet metal guardrail will be installed along the terrace periphery.

Renderings also reveal a single-story stairway leading up from the garden to a new outdoor deck above the first floor at the parlor level.

The existing structure was originally completed in 1863 and is classified as an Italianate-style row house. The property’s location in the borough’s Clinton Hill Historic District requires a Certificate of Appropriateness from the LPC before any construction can begin.

The hearing is expected to begin today at 10:00 A.M. and is open to members of the public.

  1. don’t ruin the view one floor extension only

  2. Seriously? This is the back of the building. There are no decorative elements; this is just plain Karen.

  3. I used to live in The Soundview area when it was all beautiful private houses, until the city started putting projects in and it became a crime infested area full of drugs & dealers a once beautiful community with owners who took pride in their homes now which became devastation just like the rest of the city except maybe the Silk Stocking area where the millionaires all live. the government don’t do you any favors. So Sad
    PS. What senior citizen in the Bronx for instance make $73,000 a year unless he’s a drug dealer
