There are two upcoming public hearings related to the proposed development of the Pavilion Theater site. The plans involve adding another story to the theater structure, and replacing the adjacent one-story restaurant on Bartel Pritchard Square with a six-story building. The combined structure would include 24 condos, a four-screen movie theater, and a 16-car garage. Because the Pavilion falls within the Park Slope Historic District, the developers need approval from the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC).
The Landmarks / Land Use Committee of Community Board 6 will discuss this application at its meeting on July 23 at 6 p.m. at the 78th Precinct, located at 65 6th Avenue between Dean and Bergen streets. The CB6 committee will make a recommendation to the LPC, which will hold a hearing on the matter on August 4 at the Manhattan Municipal Building at 1 Centre Street, 9th floor, at 9:30 a.m. The public will have an opportunity to testify at both hearings.
