Brownstoner reports today on the latest in the 73 Pineapple/LPC saga:
Brownstoner: When the developers brought their initial proposal for the empty lot at 73 Pineapple Street in Brooklyn Heights in front of the Landmarks Preservation Commission last August, they were sent back to the drawing board. LPC Chair Robert Tierney urged the architects to rethink the project in "a major way" while Commissioner Margery Perlmutter called for a "do over." This all on the heels of opposition by CB2, the Brooklyn Heights Association and the Historic Districts Council. At today's public hearing, the 73 Pineapple contingent will take a second shot at winning the hearts and minds of the preservationists.
