As of:

  • 2/13/12: Approved at yesterday’s LPC public meeting, and is now closed. The applicant will be undertaking less excavation so they don’t have to underpin neighboring buildings. The rooftop addition was approved because the Commission feels it is not visible from the street.
  • 11/21/12: LPC did not vote on this application at their 11/20 hearing. They felt that the rooftop and rear yard additions overwhelmed this modest row house and asked that the applicant work with staff to make revisions to the proposal. It will be presented to the commissioners at a future date, TBD.
  • 11/16/12: LPC hearing rescheduled for 11/20.
  • 10/29/12: Postponed due to Hurricane Sandy; future date TBD.
  • 10/19/12: The original LPC hearing date of 10/23 has been postponed until 10/30.
  • 10/4/12: Scheduled to be heard at CB2 on 10/15 and LPC on 10/23. See more info above.
  • 10/1/12: Postponed at CB2 and LPC (confirmed with LPC). Future date TBD.
