The Landmarks Preservation Commission approved the redevelopment of the Paul Robeson Theatre, a now-closed performance space at a church in Fort Greene.

The building is being renovated by DXA Studio, and its next tenant could possibly be a community theater, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported. The church was built in 1864, and is a Rundbogenstil, or Round Arch-style, according to the publication.

The property belongs to 375 Stuyvesant Avenue Realty Corporation, and the co-developer is the Pine Builders Corporation, headed by Oren Evenhar, the Eagle reported, citing city records.

Last year, Landmarks approved the Nederlander Organization’s plans to lift the Palace Theater at the corner of Seventh Avenue and West 47th Street by 29 feet.  [Brooklyn Daily Eagle]Miriam Hall
