Brownstoner reports that the owners of the landmarked building at 177 Montague Street on the corner of Clinton Street in Downtown Brooklyn want to build out the space with condos. Barry Rice Architects is the firm on the project, which calls for 13 condos in the rear annex building. The owners also want to build a one-story rear addition, clean the exterior, replace skylights, remove air conditioners, and add new insulated windows. The main bank hall, which currently hosts a Chase bank, is landmarked inside and out, and it will remain as is.
The building was constructed between 1913 and 1916 by partners who worked together at the original starchitect firm McKim, Mead, and White. The local community board approved the plans in November, and the Landmarks Preservation Commission hears the project today. This is definitely one to watch, so hit up the tipline if you have any intel.
