    1054 Bushwick Avenue in Bushwick

    The Landmarks Preservation Commission designated the Ridgewood Masonic Temple in Bushwick a city landmark yesterday in a unanimous decision.

    The Beaux-Arts structure was erected at 1054 Bushwick Avenue, near Gates Avenue, in 1920. Fraternal society the Freemasons uses the 15,000-square-foot space for meetings and parties. Bands such as Sleigh Bells and Lightning Bolt have performed in the first-floor theater in recent years, as previously reported. [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]

    The proposed West Village building for the Church of St. Luke in the Fields will now stand three stories shorter than its original design as a result of a new ruling by the Landmarks Preservation Committee.

    The commission, which rejected the church’s proposal to build a 15-story, 153-foot-tall tower atop a parking lot at 487 Hudson Street in March, unanimously approved the new design on Tuesday. The tower will be 121 feet tall, or three stories shorter, than the original design. [more]
