The Elad Group is pushing to gain Landmarks Preservation Commission approval for a significant renovation to the Plaza’s next-door neighbor, according to Curbed. The developer, which is in talks to sell its stake in the Plaza, will present a new plan this week for the slim seven-story building just west of the famed hotel, at 22 Central Park South.
It has commissioned Goldstein Hill & West Architects to transform the building’s facade to lend it a more modern feel. Curbed said the plans involve replacing bricks with limestone, removing fire escapes and installing Juliet balconies while adding two floors to the top of the property. [more]
