The applicant presented a revised proposal to the Landmarks Preservation Commission on July 20th, 2010. The revised application moved the multi-purpose room that was originally proposed for the top floor to a lower level and placed the classrooms on the very top. By doing this, the applicant trimmed 10′ off the overall height of the rooftop addition, which was also redesigned. The “floating stage” that was originally proposed to hoover above No. 150 West 13th Street was also eliminated in the revised proposal.
All other aspects of the proposal remained the same as originally proposed, except for the rearrangement of materials and windows on the rear stairwell and the addition of an elevator bulkhead towards the rear of the roof of the 13th Street buildings.
This revised proposal was unanimously approved by the Commission. Photos are below:
