Status as of December 6th, 2011:
The application was presented to the Landmarks Preservation Commission at their public hearing on December 6th. The Commissioners felt that the proposed storefront looked like every other Duane Reade and needed to better relate to this particular building. They also felt that too much signage was proposed. It was suggested that if aluminum is to be used, that should be “dressed up” and molded to better relate to the building. They also thought the entrance proportions were off. The Commission decided not to vote on the application, but rather asked the application to return at a later date (TBD) with revisions based on these comments.

Status as of November 28th, 2011:
