Proposed addition for 38 Greene Avenue in SoHo (Zar Property NY) Proposed addition for 38 Greene Avenue in SoHo (Zar Property NY)
Created in 1965, the Landmarks Preservation Commmission aims to protect architecturally, historically, and culturally significant buildings and sites in New York City by granting them landmark or historic district status. As the largest municipal preservation agency in the country, the body is also responsible for the regulation of landmarks after they are designated.

There are 1,412 individual landmarks, 120 interior landmarks, and 11 scenic landmarks in New York City. However, the bulk of landmark-designated properties are found throughout the city's 142 historic districts. Below are five properties that are either within historic districts or an individual landmark whose owners are proposing significant alterations that must be approved by the agency. The hearings are open to the public and take place at 1 Centre Street.

This five-story cast-iron building at 42 Walker Street was originally built in 1855 and modified in 1880 by architect Charles M. Youngs. Situated in the Tribeca East Historic District between Broadway and Church Street, the building sports a Second Empire/Neo-Greg-style cast iron facade that was restored and repainted earlier this year.

Under the design guidance of Michael Murroff Architects, Long Island-based AKM HOLDINGS LLC is seeking to build a one-floor, 21-foot-tall setback addition that would invisible from the street level. The addition's exterior would be clad in stucco to match the existing facade and feature clear glass railings and doors. According to plans, the additional floor will be part of a duplex three-bedroom penthouse with a private terrace. The owner recently introduced high-end rentals to the building where two units spanning the entire second and third levels were listed for $11,950/month. We suspect the new addition application is a precursor to the building going condo.

The hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, December 4 at 12:00 pm. Presentation materials can be viewed here.

After going before Landmarks in October with designs for a 6-floor residential buidling, the team is back with a modified design calling for five-floor building with a setback top floor. Situated at 485 Tompkins Avenue in the expanded Stuyvesant Heights Historic Deistrict, the project would usurp a vacant lot and a nodescript 2-floor building. NV Design Architecture are leading the design and renderings depict a contextual red brick facade with both rought and smooth brick courses. As proposed, the building will stand 52 feet high down from the 63 feet specified in the rejected design.

The hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, December 4 at 2:00 pm. Presentation materials can be viewed here.

First announced in 2015, Zar Property NY is seeking LPC approval to construct a two-story, 12,000-square-fooot glass duplex penthouse on top of a five-story commercial condominium at 38 Greene Street. Situated in the SoHo Cast Iron District, at the corner of Grand Street, the original 5-floor building was built in 1867 and features a cast iron storef,ront, quoin lines, and an Italianate pediment. The curving two floor addition, designed by workshop/APD abides by the zoning setback envelope and then carves into further to make invisble from ground level. A water tower is removed from the southeast corner of the building and 4,000 square feet of wraparound landscaped terraces would front the new floors.

The hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, December 4 at 12:30 pm. Presentation materials can be viewed here.

In the South Street Seaport, the city is finally moving ahead with plans to transform a wide slice of cobblestone Peck Slip, between Water and South streets, into a small park. Planned since 2006, a previous design called for a granite plaza with benches and a reflecting pool surrounded by an installation evoking the skeleton of an old ship. New illustrations show the prow-shaped plaza would be fully-paved and three triangular areas of greenery flanked by seating would adorn the plaza. There would be a drinking fountain, a stepped granite seating area, and bollards ringing the public space.

The hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, December 4 at 11:45 am. Presentation materials can be viewed here.

In November of 2016, the Bialystoker Center & Home at 228 East Broadway was purchased by a consortium of developers led by Ascend Group for $47.5 million. The 10-story, Art Deco building was erected in 1931 at the onset of the Great Depression by immigrant Jews from Bialystok, Poland. The developers plan to convert the building into condos and build a new tower directly east of the building. Up for Landmarks review is the insertion of new, residential-appropriate window sizes along the western elevation. SLCE is listed as the architects.

Plans have yet to be revealed for the tower that would rise next door. The developers had originally envisioned two 17 and 20 story towers flanking the center but a failed air rights transfer from the surrounding co-op complex has led the developer to opt for a single, taller tower. The Ascend Group, led by Rob Kaliner, developed the Georgica condo on the Upper East Side and the A Building in the East Village.

The hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, December 4 at 1:30 pm. Presentation materials can be viewed here.
