Brooklyn Eagle has published a rendering of the modified 30 Henry Street design -- the one that was approved by the Landmarks Preservation Commission on January 18. The approved design is the lower photo.
The original proposal for the new five-story, five-unit building at 30 Henry St. in Brooklyn Heights (the former site of Brooklyn Eagle headquarters) -- the one that wasn't approved -- is shown on top.
Aside from the poor quality of the newer rendering, how many differences can you spot?
We notice the chimneys are white in the newer version.
The Eagle notes, "To the untrained eye, the new plan looks very similar to the original design that was submitted to the commission recently."
In December,the Brooklyn Heights Association's Executive Director Judy Stanton told the Brooklyn Eagle the building site "cries out for a distinctive and much more contemporary design than that which was shown to the BHA last week.
“Fortis has hired excellent architects in BKSK, and the BHA has respectfully asked them to return to the drafting board to create a building that celebrates our time."
