The Landmarks Preservation Commission has approved the design for a new townhouse to be built on an empty lot at 437 Henry Street at Kane Street. Brownstoner reports that the plans include a carriage house and modification of the fence along Kane. The lot is next to the double-wide mansion at 439-441 Henry Street.
The entire 100-by-200-foot property was purchased in January 2011 for $5.4 million by the current owners of 439-441 Henry. The existing Henry Street property will be subdivided into apartments, with CWB Architects overseeing plans—the same firm that is designing the Strong Place Townhouses next door on Kane Street. Work on the new townhouse isn’t expected to begin until next spring or summer.
