At the July 20th public hearing, the Landmarks Preservation Commission reviewed the proposal and felt that the proposed wire mesh rooftop railing was too visible from the public way. They asked the applicant to return at a later date with revisions. The Commission took no issue with any of the changes proposed for the front (Barrow Street) facade.
Status as of July 12th, 2010:
The originally-scheduled July 13th public hearing at the Landmarks Preservation Commission has been postponed to July 20th, 2010.
Status as of July 6th, 2010:
At the July 6th Community Board 2 public hearing, the applicant presented plans that will be shown to the Landmarks Preservation Commission on July 13th. The proposal involves changes to both the front and rear facades as well as the addition of a roof deck. A portion of the rear facade is visible from Seventh Avenue South.
On the front (Barrow Street) facade, the applicant is proposing to restore the door, stoop and railings using these features at Nos. 49 & 51 Barrow Street as a prototype.
On the rear (Seventh Avenue South) facade, the applicant is proposing to add a railing to the existing second-floor balcony and to change the second-floor center window to a door.
In order to create a roof deck, the proposal involves lowering the existing roof while maintaining the height of the parapet walls on both facades. The deck would have a wire mesh railing that would be recessed 6′ from the front of the building (thus the applicant claims it would not be visible from Barrow Street). The roof would also have a raised skylight and a stair bulkhead.
