Hawthorne Court Landmarked; Pacific Park Groundbreaking

BAYSIDE—The Landmarks Preservation Commission voted unanimously to landmark the Hawthorne Court Apartments in Queens. The Tudor Revival style low-rise buildings were built in 1930 and 1931, and were designed by noted architect Benjamin Braunstein, who combined ideas from the British garden city movement and the New York modern tenement movement.

PROSPECT HEIGHTS—A December 15 groundbreaking date has been set for the next Pacific Park (nee Atlantic Yards) tower, 535 Carlton Avenue. The entity developing the COOKFOX-designed building is now calling itself Greenland Forest City Partners, as it's a partnership between Forest City and the Chinese investment group that bailed them out.
