As previously reported, the plans for construction at 73 Pineapple will be reviewed by the Landmark Preservation Commission tomorrow after being laid over from the last two meetings. Brownstoner has dedicated some shoe leather to the story:
Brownstoner: 73 Pineapple: The future of 73 Pineapple Street, one of the only remaining empty lots in Brooklyn Heights, will be discussed at tomorrow's Landmarks Preservation Meeting. Rush Brook Partners, run by a form Merrill Lynch exec, shelled out a total $7.4 million for the 25-by-75-foot lot and the two adjacent rental buildings last February. (The lot itself went for $1,653,750.) The firm is now trying to gain approval to build a five-story contemporary design on the site. Our calls to the company's office were not returned, so all we know about the plans are what Community Board 2's Land Use Committee said about them when it voted 10-2 against them.
While the drawings remain a mystery for now, we still like our rendering and welcome any other "renderings" from the BHB community —
