The Landmarks Preservation Commission today unanimously approved with minor modifications a plan by Adg-Soho LLC to erect a new 9-story at 325-9 West Broadway and restore two buildings behind it at 23-25 Wooster Street.

The new building has been designed by Beyhan Karahan and will have 29 residential condominium apartments.

The approved design had been revised slightly to make its asymmetrical fenestration pattern align somewhat better with its neighbors.

Commissioner Thomas Pike stated that it was a "wonderful design" and Commissioner Roberta Brandes Gratz praised it as a "terrific design" that is "dramatic and subtle at the same time." Commissioner Richard Olcott said that the design was "very elegant.

Commssioner Stephen Brynes also liked the plan but suggested that the rooftop setbacks on Wooster Street might be made less visible.

The left third of the building's facade is setback about two feet. The building's top floor also has a cantilevered element that is a symbolic cornice.

The mid-block building is between Grand and Canal Streets. It is close to the Soho Grand Hotel and many boutiques and restaurants.
