If you’re walking on Schermerhorn Street towards Clinton Street, you might notice something new. The building at 141 Clinton Street will be getting a rooftop stair bulkhead to replace the existing hatch. This will allow the residents to make use of the roof as the plan presented included a “piped gas outdoor barbecue.”
On Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved the plan presented by architect Marc Ackerson of Manhattan-based Field Lines Architecture, though there were conditions. The bulkhead should all be one color and the eave should be thinner. Ackerson did not object.
LPC Chair Meenakshi Srinivasan called the proposal “modest in the footprint.” Judy Stanton of the Brooklyn Heights Association also supported it, saying it would have “minimal impact.” In fact, it should be visible from a small spot on Schermerhorn Street.
