Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) public hearing overview, July 20th, 2021 at 1:15 PM – No Vote

  • Commissioners did not disapprove of the demolition of the existing one-story building or the proposed building’s massing and height but were skeptical of the windows and thinking behind that design choice.
  • Commissioners were concerned about the thin brick veneer as it is unknown how that material will age in comparison with actual brick of the neighboring buildings.
  • The Commission suggested better use of storefront and storefront windows.
  • Commissioners warned that the building was trying so hard to blend with the other buildings in the Village that it could end up sticking out more like a bad replica. They encouraged the applicant to reimagine the design in a more contemporary manner that creatively interacts with the surrounding historic buildings.
  • No vote was taken. The Commission recommended that the applicant make significant changes to the design before the project is presented at the September CB2 meeting. 

Starting July 20, 2021 LPC Public hearings will be held at The Municipal Building, 1 Centre Street, 9th Floor North, public hearing room.
