With Brooklyn land prices soaring, new townhouses are a rarity. But no less than three new-construction townhouses are rising in Brooklyn Heights.

The Landmarks Preservation Commission approved the proposal to build on a lot at 295-299 Hicks Street, between State and Joralemon streets, that has been vacant since the 1940s, according to Curbed.

The development first came under LPC review in September, but the commission considered the design too “awkward.”

The four-story, single-family townhouses are being developed by Heights Advisors and will feature four bedrooms, and front and rear terraces. [Curbed]Christopher Cameron
