Updated renderings and proposals have surfaced for a single-family townhouse at 27 Cranberry Street in Brooklyn Heights. The hotly contested structure was first presented and approved by the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission in 2011, but the project team failed to obtain construction permits due to legal action by neighboring property owners who feared the new building could damage the value of their historic homes. Plans resurfaced in 2015, but again, construction failed to break ground.
Property owner Raj Ramasaran has filed applications for a five-story, five-unit residential building measuring 4,125 square feet at the vacant lot of 483 Waverly Avenue, in southern Clinton Hill. Charles Schmitt is designing the project.
