Developer Steven Schnall went before the Landmarks Committee of Manhattan Community Board 1 to present his plan for 11-15 Leonard Street last night, Curbed reported. The committee responded by issuing a resolution against the design.

The committee members had two main complaints: the building’s height and color. One member wants the facade to be brown in color, whereas another wished for a “warmer” grey, according to Curbed. There’s no specific mention of the complaints about the height.

As previously reported, Schnall plans to replace two parking garages that currently occupy the sites with a glass building. The seven-story building will be topped with a two-story penthouse, according to Curbed, 75-feet wide at the base and 60-feet wide above.

Neighborhood residents who attended the meeting said they had concerns about how construction would congest the narrow street, as well as the building’s height. The residents have hired a lawyer, but Curbed said there has been no legal action taken yet. [Curbed]
