A new two-unit house is on its way to a vacant Brooklyn lot. On Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved the proposal to build such a structure at 39 South Elliott Place. That’s in the Fort Greene Historic District.
39 South Elliott Place
A proposal to construct a new two-unit residential building on a vacant Brooklyn lot hit a brick wall at the Landmarks Preservation Commission. On Tuesday, both the members of the commission and the public rejected the proposal for 39 South Elliott Place, located between DeKalb and Lafayette avenues in the Fort Greene Historic District.
Ana Eskreis, head of Max Studio, has filed applications for a four-story, two-unit residential building at 39 South Elliott Place, in Fort Greene. That’s steps away from the G train’s Fulton Street stop and the C train’s Lafayette Avenue stop. The building will measure 2,472 square feet in total. Triplex units will span the cellar through second floors and a duplex will take up the upper two floors. The project is being designed in-house.
