CB8 Hearing: 10/15/12 (Approved)
LPC Hearing: 11/13/12 (Approved)

FRIENDS Testimony:

Because the new areaway dimensions are consistent with others on the block and the modification to the doorway is an improvement, the proposed front façade work was found to be appropriate by the FRIENDS Preservation Committee. At the rear, irregular massing and a series of setbacks successfully maintain the concept of additions over time that is typical to buildings of this type. Furthermore, this reconfiguration has been achieved with a reduction in square footage. For these reasons, our committee supports the approval of this application.
