The Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) has approved proposals to renovate a three-story townhouse at 370 Adelphi Street in Brooklyn’s Fort Greene Historic District. Drawings submitted to the LPC only specify alterations at the rear of the property with a rooftop addition and do not propose any changes to the face of the structure along Adelphi Street. The building was purchased by Sarah McNally, the founder of McNally Jackson Books, for around $2.53 million in 2019.
Permits have been filed for a 13-story mixed-use building at 142 South Portland Avenue in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. Located between Hanson Place and Academy Park Place, the lot is two blocks west of the LIRR Atlantic Terminal and Atlantic Avenue-Barclay Center subway station, serviced by the 2, 3, 4, 5, B, D, N, Q, and R trains. Michael T. Rooney under the South Portland LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
The Landmarks Preservation Commission will review proposals from CWB Architects to construct a row of five identical townhomes in the Fort Greene Historic District. Located along Clermont Avenue, the property addresses range from 352 to 360 Clermont Avenue and would replace an existing one-story parking structure and a surrounding parking lot.
Construction has kicked off at 137 Carlton Ave in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. Gama Holdings, current owners of the property, has confirmed that foundation work will wrap up this week. The company also released new renderings of the development that reveal the building’s elegant rear design, residential terraces, and a rear yard.
