The Boerum Hill Historic District is getting about 300 buildings larger.

The Landmarks Preservation Commission agreed to broaden the Brooklyn neighborhood’s existing historic district on Tuesday, according to Curbed. The addition includes Dean and Bergen Streets between Smith and Hoyt Streets, Wyckoff and Bergen Streets between Bond and Nevins Streets, Atlantic Avenue between Hoyt and Nevins Streets and Pacific Street between Hoyt and Bond Streets.

This adds to Boerum Hill Historic District that was formed in 1973. The area stands out for its 19th-century-era row houses built in Italianate and Greek Revival styles.

The commission voted unanimously at the end of May to create a new historic district in Harlem between Lenox Avenue and Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard and West 130th and 132nd Streets.  These districts are seldom popular with the real estate industry, which has argued that they prevent developers from building more housing for the city.
