The Brooklyn Eagle reports that proposed building at 73 Pineapple will be a “good neighbor” according to architect of Sherida Paulsen of Pasanella + Klein Stolzman + Berg (PKSB) Architects, also the firm behind the revamped 20 Henry Street:
Brooklyn Eagle: 73 Pineapple…: It will be “a good neighbor building,” according to its architect, Sherida Paulsen of Pasanella + Klein Stolzman + Berg (PKSB) Architects in Manhattan…
…“The building sits between two other buildings where the one is a buff color and the other is pinkish-red, so we chose something in the middle,” Paulsen said. “Also the building closer to Henry Street has bay windows and we took that as the model for this one’s design.”
It will also be an improvement for the street itself and neighbors support it.
As previously reported, the Landmarks Preservation Commission, in approving its design last fall, said the building, “set at the property line, strengthens the streetwall on this block” and its height and scale “relates to the height and scale of the block.”
