Application is to construct a rooftop addition, enlarge an existing rear extension, and excavate at the cellar.
PAST HEARING/MEETING DATES and DECISIONS
LPC Public Meeting – February 13 2024
Approved with modifications. The applicants must revise the design so that the rear yard addition extends no further than the adjacent additions in the row, the rooftop flues are angled away from the front facade to reduce visibility, and the rooftop addition is finished with a natural zinc or another more neutral color. Additionally, applicants must work with staff to examine if the stucco at the top floor of the rear facade can be retained.
LPC Public Hearing – January 30, 2024
Read into the record
Community Board 2 Meeting – December 18, 2023
CB resolution recommended:
A. Approval of the areaway and gate, the rooftop addition, the flue extension and the design of the extension; and
B. Denial of the painting white of the rear facade as without historic reference and far too bright and that a less contrasting color be used; and
C. Approval of the excavation with underpinning provided that an engineering report and plan are approved by the Commission, that all regulations and safeguards to ensure that there is no harm to the subject property are observed, and that there is dialogue with the owners of the neighboring building throughout the planning and construction time.
