Located in the Brooklyn Heights Historic District, entrance and sidewalk improvements were developed in accordance with the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission guidelines. The scope included replacement of 1200 sf of sidewalk, expansion of the foundation garden beds with raised brick curb walls to match the building facade and repair and pointing of two separate apartment entrances that flank the building’s main entrance. The new landscape is a mix of shade tolerant evergreen and deciduous material with room for rotating seasonal plantings. Located just a few blocks from New York Harbor, the plant selection is hardy to withstand the exposed location.
