The proposed signage, awnings and window changes for the two floors of retail at the Brooklyn Municipal Building got a mostly green light from the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) on Tuesday.
Commissioners approved the project in a 6-0 vote “with modifications, including the removal of the blade signs, reducing the size of the signage in the transom from 2-feet-6-inches to 2 feet and removing the signage from the awnings, except for the awnings over the entryways,” according to Lisi de Bourbon, press secretary for the commission.
“However, the commissioners did not approve the applicant’s plan for a sign on the Joralemon Street side of the building,” she added.
This was the second appearance before the LPC by the Albert Laboz/United American Land development and design team with its proposed alterations.
Described as a neo-Classical-style civic building designed by McKenzie Voorhees & Gmelin and built in 1923-26, it is now part of the new Borough Hall Skyscraper Historic District in Community District 2.
