The Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) has approved proposals to renovate a three-story townhouse at 370 Adelphi Street in Brooklyn’s Fort Greene Historic District. Drawings submitted to the LPC only specify alterations at the rear of the property with a rooftop addition and do not propose any changes to the face of the structure along Adelphi Street. The building was purchased by Sarah McNally, the founder of McNally Jackson Books, for around $2.53 million in 2019.

The Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) has approved plans submitted by CTA Architects to partially replace the existing stairway in front of New York City Hall. Located within a wedge-shaped plaza between Broadway, Park Row, and Chambers Street, the historic structure was originally completed around 1812 and serves as the seat of the New York City government.
E. Cobb Architects has again presented proposals to the Landmarks Preservation Commission for a hulking private residence at 11 Hubert Street in the Tribeca West Historic District. The design team was commissioned by an unnamed private client to design a five-story single-family structure on the corner of Hubert and Collister Streets.
The Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) and local Community Board 7 have again failed to approve proposals to renovate and enliven an abandoned church that has been proposed as a new home for the Children’s Museum of Manhattan. Located on the Upper West Side at 361 Central Park West, the First Church of Christ Scientist was originally completed around 1903, then designated a New York City landmark in 1973.
The new dome addition atop 44 Union Square, the former headquarters of Tammany Hall, is now fully enclosed in glass. The renovation and addition project is designed by BKSK Architects. Reading International (RDI) is the developer and Edifice Real Estate Partners is the owners representative. CNY Group is in charge of construction on the historic building, which overlooks Union Square.
