126 First Place

At 6pm on Thursday, September 25,2008, a Public Hearing IN THE MATTER OF an application submitted to the Board of Standards and Appeals (BSA Calendar No. 217-08-BZY)* on behalf of Steven Reich for an extension of time to complete construction pursuant to Zoning Resolution section 11-331, property located at 126 First Place (Block 459, Lot 17), will come before Community District 6, Brooklyn, The Landmarks/Land Use Committee of Brooklyn Community Board 6. It will be held at the auditorium of P.S. 32, 317 Hoyt Street between (Union/President Streets). The owner has raised the roof line to extend the height of the top floor to the same height as the lower floors. On the roof, there is a penthouse that is set back. It looks like the setback will be used as a front balcony, as they have put a wrought iron railing at the roof line, which is totally out of keeping with Brownstone architectural elements. It has also extended the rear and added four rear balconies to each condo.
