    Frederick Bland and 140 West 81st Street on Upper West Side

    The Landmarks Preservation Commission approved the Mount Pleasant Baptist Church’s plan yesterday to add a seven-story residential component to the church site on the Upper West Side.

    DXA Studio is designing the conversion at 140-142 West 81st Street. Church officials propose constructing as many as 10 apartments, with the top two floors holding duplexes. The project will also result in repaired stained glass windows and some of the church windows being replaced with wood-frame windows. The property, built in 1893, will have two separate entrances – one for the church and one for the apartments. [more]

    55-27 Myrtle Avenue, Queens

    The landmarked Ridgewood Theater in Queens will soon be topped by 50 residential units, though a preservationist aims to maintain the building’s façade.

    The Department of Buildings signed off on paperwork last week permitting Bushburg Properties LLC, which purchased the theater for $6.9 million in August, to convert the first floor into 13,638 square feet of commercial space and construct four floors of residential units above. That work, according to filings for the 55-27 Myrtle Avenue property, will be done within the building’s existing shell. [more]

    498 West End Avenue

    The Landmarks Preservation Commission approved a 4,000-square-foot addition to 498 West End Avenue, a rental building on the Upper West Side.

    The plans call for a reconfigured front entrance and rooftop addition, building out a single-floor appendage on the roof and adding a second floor on top of that. The revamp will also add a new cornice to the building, and the current front stairs will be removed. The LPC commissioners waived through the proposal, with comments ranging from “no problem” to “great proposal,” according to Curbed. [more]
