Eric Anton and 110 Amity Street
A Long Island College Hospital building at 110 Amity Street in Cobble Hill will be converted into a condominium building as part of a controversial development plan, the Brooklyn Paper reported. The landmarked Lamm Institute building and three adjacent lots at Amity and Henry streets sold to a group of investors for $6 million, according to broker Eric Anton of Eastern Consolidated, and the new owners intend to transform it into three luxury units, Cobble Hill blog reported. In 2007, the hospital sold the land for $6.1 to Manhattan-based Time Equities, which planned to convert the mansion into eight apartments and construct six, single family townhouses. But residents called the plan the “Amity Street Horror” because they said it was architecturally inconsistent with the historic district. The Landmarks Preservation Commission agreed. “It is a very significant landmark in the community and we are very concerned about its preservation,” said Roy Sloane, president of civic group Cobble Hill Association. Since the property is landmarked, any additional changes to its exterior will require city approval. [Brooklyn Paper]
