FRIENDS' Testimony:

FRIENDS’ Preservation Committee believes that the proposed six-story addition is thoughtfully designed and will not have an adverse impact on the integrity of the Park Avenue Historic District nor on the individually landmarked Church of Saint Ignatius Loyola. Finally, FRIENDS takes no issue with the limited visibility of the elevator bulkhead.
