Proposals to redevelop and expand a 20’s-era Catholic School at 991 Saint Johns Place have again returned to the Landmark Preservation Commission following criticism from the city agency. Located in Crown Heights the Neo-Classical-style building was originally constructed in 1921 by architect Frank J. Helme.
991 Saint Johns Place
A proposal has been revealed for the redevelopment of the St. Gregory the Great School, a four-floor Neo-Classical design by Helmle & Corbett from 1921. The notable historic features include the entrance portico and building piers at the upper story windows, with arch-headed blind lintels. The proposal is to almost double the building’s floor count and add residential units to the old school building in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, at 991 Saint Johns Place.
