Heights Association Fears High-Rise Encroachment of Historic District

An "alleged" aggressive marketing campaign to interest potential buyers in the two-story building at 88-96 Clinton St. in Brooklyn Heights, now housing outpatient offices affiliated with Long Island College Hospital, has raised worries at the Brooklyn Heights Association, according to a story by Linda Collins at the Brooklyn Eagle.

Although the building, on the northwest corner of Clinton and Remsen Streets, lies within the Brooklyn Heights Historic District, it is not covered by the district’s 50-foot height limitation for new structures. A rendering of a potential 14-story tower was submitted anonymously to the Eagle.
