For those Real Estate Companies in Brooklyn, Real Estate Brokers  and Real Estate Agents in Brooklyn who follow the latest news in the Crown Heights North Historic District, the Landmarks Preservation Commission is very close to approving the development of a new 4 story residential building at 906 Prospect Place.

The building currently occupying the site has become an eyesore from decades of neglect. LPC Chairman Meenakshi Srinivasan said that demolition was not a problem for the commissioners. The pictures of the current building speak for themselves.

Developer Jeffrey Gershon purchased the property in 2014 for $3.5M.

Mary Dierickx is the preservation consultant on the project and Chris Carano is the architect. Mr. Carano is with ADG Architecture & Design. Dierickx said that the new building will be a “contextural brick and limestone building”. The new building will conform to the look and feel of the area mix of residential buildings.

The building will be 22,000 square feet for 20 apartments and there will be parking in the rear for 10 cars.

The Historic District Council did have minor changes that they suggested to modify the look of the building. The developer will need topresent a revised proposal at a LPC meeting. There seems to be a consensus that the developer’s  new proposal will be approved.
