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 fa├žade 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.
