LPC Hearing – February 13th, 2024
Approved with modifications. The applicants must work with staff to revise the rear facade modification to be a mounted handrail instead of extending the brickwork, adjust the detailing of the railing at the front facade, and revise the finish of the rooftop addition to a zinc material sympathetic to the neighboring building finishes, as opposed to the proposed dark black finish.

Community Board 2 Meeting – January 11, 2024
CB resolution recommended:
A. Approval of the bulk of the rooftop addition, modification of the stair bulkhead, restoration of the front and rear facades, cornice, and railing; and
B. Denial of the front facade rooftop addition unless the pitch is increased and the amount of glazing is increased to lessen visibility and to evoke a historic artist’s studio window.

Community Board 2 Meeting – December 18, 2023
