Fifteen months after Community Board 9 unanimously resolved to pursue landmark designation for a row of historic houses on Ocean Avenue, the Landmarks Preservation Commission will be voting on whether to calendar the proposed Ocean on the Park Historic District at its February 10th meeting. When the campaign began, there were 13 houses in the row, 10 limestone mansions designed by Axel Hedman and three brick houses; now, thanks to the developer of 185 Ocean Avenue, there are only two brick houses left, for a total of 12 in the proposed district. The agenda is not available yet for the LPC meeting a week from Tuesday, but it takes place at 1 Centre Street, 9th Floor in Manhattan.
