Status as of July 20th, 2010
At a public hearing on July 20th, the applicant presented a revised proposal to the Landmarks Preservation Commission. The applicant proposed painting the existing rooftop mechanicals black and eliminated the rooftop fence, which was part of the original proposal. This revised proposal was approved by the Commission.

Status as of July 16th, 2010
A revised version of this application is scheduled to be shown to the Commission on July 20th, 2010.

Status as of May 18th, 2010
At the May 18th public hearing, the Commission indicated that they thought the proposed fence would be inappropriate, and that the applicant should instead consider moving the mechanicals back and/or constructing a different type of fence that would be more appropriate for the building. They did not vote on this application, but rather asked the applicant to revise the proposal and return at a later date TBD.

Status as of May 13th, 2010:
This application will be shown to the Landmarks Preservation Commission at a public hearing on May 18th, 2010. The applicant is proposing to construct a 48″-high fence on the roof, set back approx. 6′ from the primary facade, which would obliterate the view of the existing rooftop mechanicals (many of which were installed illegally; the applicant is proposing to legalize them). The applicant is also proposing to add new rooftop mechanicals, which would be approximately the same height as those that currently exist.
