After sending the Arby's franchisee with his sights set on the landmarked interior space at 372 Fulton Street back to the drawing board last month, the Landmarks Preservation Commission on Tuesday voted by a 7-1 margin to approve the modified plans. The commissioners appreciated all of the steps the owner took to address their prior concerns, including returning wood floor panels to a darker color and preserving the mirrored wall. (For more detail, see the Brooklyn Paper's coverage.) The last sticking point was the mounting of a large menu board over one of the mirrored arches; the commission instructed the owner to continue to refine the design to minimize its detraction from the historic space. The owner is shooting for a late summer opening.
