The Landmarks Preservation Commission signed off on JMH Development and Madison Estates’ plans to replace the Brooklyn Heights Cinema at 70 Henry Street with condominiums.

The developers are planning a five-story apartment building with a retail portion on the ground floor, according to Curbed. Morris Adjmi is the architect of record for the new project.

JMH and Madison bought the site for $7.5 million last fall.

The LPC already denied two earlier versions of JMH’s and Madison’s plans. The newest proposal includes the preservation of the cinema’s original brick facade, according to the website. The building will house five condo units.

Although the commission ordered three stipulations to the plan to make the building look historically accurate, they approved it Tuesday. During the meeting, Landmarks chair Meenakshi Srinivasan reportedly called the new design “very elegant.” [Curbed] — Claire Moses
