CB8 Hearing: 2/15/23 (Approved)
LPC Hearing: 3/14/23 (Approved with Modifications)

FRIEND'S Testimony:

FRIENDS’ Preservation Committee commends the applicant for the modest size of the rooftop addition and the fact that it will not be visible from the public way. We also appreciate the effort to match the materials of the new addition with the historic white stucco of the unusual, Spanish style rear façade. In addition, we feel the new black metal balconies and new openings of the penthouse addition are in keeping with the building's design and will not detract from the historic structure.
