A highly anticipated LPC hearing for the renovation and exterior alteration at the New York Public Library’s Stephen A. Schwarzman Building at 476 Fifth Avenue will take place later today. Earlier this month, the Landmarks Committee of Community Board 5 met to discuss proposed changes to the library that would introduce new outdoor areas.
Morris Adjmi Architects will return to the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission to present updated proposals for 430 West Broadway. The new office building was originally designed with a grey brick façade and large, metal-framed windows meant to evoke the historic glass-windowed sidewalks seen throughout SoHo and TriBeCa neighborhoods.
GE-T Architects have revealed proposals to renovate an existing, seven-story building at 29-31 Leonard Street, located within the Tribeca West Historic District. Silvera Properties reportedly purchased the property in 2018 for $24.5 million, and the submission will head to the City’s Landmarks Preservation Commission this week for review.
Morris Adjmi Architects will soon appear before the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission to propose a new mixed-use development in Greenwich Village, Manhattan. If approved, the existing one-story commercial building at 38 West 8th Street would be replaced by a six-story residential property with ground-floor retail and a small community facility.
Developers will again appear before the Landmarks Preservation Commission seeking approvals to renovate and redesign 550 Madison Avenue. This follows impassioned NIMBY outcry against the original proposal.
