Frank Gehry to Have Prospect Heights Historic Dist. Neighbor?

How Prospect Heights will look against the background of a future Atlantic Yards is anyone's guess, but there may be some comfort in knowing that the neighborhood will probably be a Historic District. Plans to create a Prospect Heights Historic District are apparently advancing and are said to be "at the top of the list" of ones being considered by the Landmarks Preservation Commission. The concern of residents behind the designation is that Atlantic Yards will create more development pressure in the brownstone neighborhood. Most of the land in the Atlantic Yards footprint isn't in the tentative boundaries of the district and there's no actual time line for creating it.
