As of:

  • 1/15/14: Application approved at yesterday’s LPC public meeting, and is now closed. The applicant is keeping the Bishop’s Crook light poles at their historic curb locations and will not be placing them anywhere else. They will also be maintaining the curb line; installing a bike path in the middle of the street; adding crosswalks that match those approved in the DUMBO Historic District; recycling about 85% of the existing cobbles and preserving the cobble patterns (a survey was completed to document existing patterns); saving existing granite; adding movable painted black steel planters rather than fixed (and there will be about 36% less planters than what was first proposed). Please note: these notes are based on what we took at yesterday’s meeting and may not be complete; for more information please fill out a Records Access Request at LPC.
  • 1/10/14: Application scheduled for LPC public meeting on 1/14. No testimony is taken, but the public is welcome to attend.
  • 9/18/13: At yesterday’s public hearing, the LPC commissioners took a vote of no action. They expressed concerns over the proposed lighting and planters, as they felt they did not relate to the gritty, industrial history of the Meatpacking District. They seemed to be okay with the rest of the proposal. The applicant (DOT) will present their revisions at a future public meeting, date TBD.
  • 9/9/13: This application was laid over at LPC and is scheduled to be heard on 9/17. It will be presented at CB2 on 9/16 at 6 P.M. (first item on the agenda) at Church of Our Lady of Pompeii, 25 Carmine Street, Father Demo Hall.
