FRIENDS believes the proposed casement window to be agreeable, it will enhance the street level facade, and is especially valuable in these times. Additionally, we are not opposed to the installation of the retractable awning, as we believe it to have handsome muted colors. In 2016 FRIENDS suggested the creation of a master plan for the windows and awnings of this building, we are pleased to see that the current proposal is consistent with the existing windows and will create a more harmonious street frontage.
Finally, FRIENDS Preservation Committee does not oppose the new signage, however, we would like to ask the applicant to make an effort to reuse the existing pin holes on the facade from the previous sign.
