 The Park Slope Civic Council urges Park Slope residents to attend important public hearings on the Pavilion Theater project. The first hearing is before the Community Board 6 Landmarks Committee on Thursday, July 23rd at 6:00PM, which will be held at the 78th Precinct at 65 Sixth Avenue (between Dean and Bergen Streets).

The committee will make a recommendation to the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC), which will receive public testimony on this project at a second public hearing on August 4th at 9:30 am at the Manhattan Municipal Building, 1 Centre Street, 9th Floor. The community's testimony at these public hearings will be a factor in the final design of the project.

The Pavilion Theater will be converted into 24 condos, a subterranean 16-car garage, and 4 movie screens. Tenants and cars will enter on the 14th Street side of the theater. The project will incorporate a new 5-story building replacing the existing one-story restaurant facing Bartel Pritchard Square.

In including these properties in the extension of the Park Slope Historic District, the LPC called the west side of Bartel Pritchard Square a formal portal into the neighborhood. The project will be a significant addition to the square, which makes it important for the community's voice to be heard at these two hearings.
