The Brooklyn Eagle reports today that the developer who purchased 71,73 and 75 Pineapple Street plans to build a "contemporary" structure in the vacant lot at number 73. According to the report the new construction is on the docket for the Landmarks Preservation Commission today (update: action has apparently been LAID OVER) and on the CB2's agenda for tomorrow night's meeting.
The Eagle says new owner Deepak Raj has hired Alex Nussbaumer of AEN Architects for the project. Judy Stanton and the BHA have been told about the project and she tells the paper, "We’ve been made aware that the owner has plans to develop a five-story, nine-unit residential rental building and that the concept is for a very contemporary design. And that’s fine with us. We embrace a contemporary look.” She added, “We look forward to working with the owners on something new that is sensitive to the historic district and distinguishes itself in the historic district.”
As for AEN, they're currently working on a historic renovation on State Street.
