08/07/2018: At today’s LPC public meeting, this application was approved with the modification that the applicant work with staff to address concerns raised about the rooftop railing in which the visibility of the penthouse railing be reduced, in particular over the 2nd Avenue façade.
07/10/2018: At today’s LPC public hearing, the applicant was asked to make several revisions to the design and re-present a revised proposal at a future public meeting. All of the Commissioners agreed that a plaque should be incorporated into the design to commemorate the victims of the explosion. There also seemed to be a consensus that the color of the masonry needed to be adjusted. Some of the Commissioners had issues with the windows including the corner windows, although in the case of the corner window different solutions were offered, some contradictory. They also asked that the penthouse and bulkhead be reduced.
