Status as of August 9th, 2011: The applicant presented the proposal to the Landmarks Preservation Commission at their public hearing on August 9th. After reviewing the proposal, the Commission decided not to vote on the application, but instead asked the applicant to return at a later date with revisions. In general, the Commissioners thought that the size and massing were fine, but as compared to the architect’s other projects, this was “safe but disappointing.” They thought that more could be done to break up the monotony of the side (Lafayette Street) facade, and that the architect should take more risks with other details including the storefront and canopy, which they thought seemed generic and like “an afterthought.”
