It’s hard to miss the freestanding Stuyvesant Heights Mansion, at 375 Stuyvesant Avenue, given its stately presence and large lot. (Read about the building’s incredible history here.) Now, renderings have surfaced for a proposal to erect a five-story apartment building at the back of the property. The property once held a stable house used by Bread Love as a cafe, but it was destroyed in 2014 due to a fire. DXA Studio first applied for permits to build the separate 7,386 square-foot structure, to be divided among seven units, last summer.

Now the actual design proposal will be presented to Community Board Three’s Landmarks Committee. Their meeting will be held at CB3’s board office, on the second floor of 1360 Fulton Street, this upcoming Monday February 12th at 6:30pm. The meeting is open to the public, and board members will have the opportunity to voice either concern or support of the proposal. After that, DXA Studio will need approval from the Landmarks Preservation Commission before moving ahead with construction. Below, an image of the site as it currently looks.
