The lot at 295-299 Hicks Street has been vacant since the 1940s, but the Landmarks Preservation Commission has cleared the way for that to change. On Tuesday, the LPC approved a proposal to build three four-story townhouses on the site, Evan Bindelglass reported for Curbed NY.
The townhouses were designed by Krista Demirdache of Nikolai Katz Architect and the commission felt the design presented Tuesday was a great improvement over the one presented back in September. Each unit will have four bedrooms as well as front and rear terraces.
