Since July, YIMBY has been reporting on efforts to expand the eight-story (seven stories plus a penthouse) townhouse apartment building at 1143 Fifth Avenue, on the Upper East Side. The owner has been trying to convince the Landmarks Preservation Commission to allow the addition since November. On Tuesday, on the fourth attempt, the commission granted approval, though the expansion will be far smaller than originally proposed.
Since November, building owner Jean Claude Marian has been trying to convince the Landmarks Preservation Commission to allow him to construct an addition atop an Upper East Side building. Like the two before it, the latest attempt was not a success. The building in question is 1143 Fifth Avenue, located between East 95th Street and East 96th Street in the Carnegie Hill Historic District.
Back in November, we reported on a proposal to take a seven-story residential building at 1143 Fifth Avenue, between East 95th and 96th streets in the Carnegie Hill Historic District, and enlarge it to 13 stories. That really didn’t go over well with neighbors and preservationists, and the Landmarks Preservation Commission didn’t approve it. Last Tuesday, a new proposal, one that would have the existing one-story addition rebuilt as a two-story addition, also did not pass muster with the commissioners.
