Back in December we revealed that Park Slope’s iconic Pavilion Theater may be going residential after scoping out renderings on the website of architecture firm Architecture Outfit, which showed two possible schemes. The first was a six-story residential building rising behind the theater’s sublime Moorish façade and from a neighboring lot just south of the theater, and the second was a plan that preserved the theater in its entirety, limiting construction to the neighboring lot.
Now, The Real Deal reports that Hidrock Realty, who bought the theater in 2006 for $16 million, has officially filed plans to build a six-story, 24-unit building on the site at 188 Prospect Park West, replacing the theater. And the architect of record is none other than Morris Adjmi, well known for his ability to create structures that seamlessly blend with their historic surroundings while still displaying subtle, modern touches. But since the theater is part of the Park Slope Historic District, this plan will likely not be so cut-and-dried.
