LPC Public Meeting – March 5th, 2024

LPC Public Meeting – October 17, 2023
NO ACTION: Most aspects of the proposal were deemed appropriate by the majority of commissioners. The only issue that prevented this project from being approved was the extent of excavation – applicants were asked to return to a future public meeting with a reduction to that scope. There were also several comments about possibly reducing the width of the proposed studio window, and further retaining the horse walk, though the project may be approved without any further changes in those regards.

LPC Public Hearing – June 7, 2022

Community Board 2 Meeting – March 16, 2022
The CB resolution recommended:
A. Approval of the excavation provided that all regulations are followed to prevent harm to the property and to neighboring properties; and
B. Approval of the rear dormer structure and the rooftop; and
C. Denial of the rear façade windows, the rear dormer, and in the rear house ground floor and recommends that they instead be wood, historically referenced with small panes and that in the parlor and second floors of the main house the punched, tripartite design remains; and
D. Denial of the change of the window in the horse walk door and of the proposed alterations to the horse walk that is an integral part of the character of the house, and which is visible through the window from the sidewalk and is of special importance to this individual landmark.
