The Landmarks Preservation Commission added hundreds of buildings on the Upper West Side to its Riverside-West End Historic District on Tuesday, bringing the number of protected buildings in the district to 1,255.

The commission designated 344 new buildings Tuesday as the Riverside-West End Historic District Extension II, protecting virtually every building between West 94th and 108th streets between Riverside Drive and West End Avenue.

The extension would have originally added 377 buildings, including many along Broadway, according to New York YIMBY. The body’s commissioners discussed the proposed Broadway buildings Tuesday, with a consensus that they should be considered for protection at some point and their lack of inclusion would not stop the extension’s designation.

One building of contention in the designation process was P.S. 75, at 735 West End Avenue. The school was initially nixed from the designation and eventually restored, though it will be listed as a “no style” building regulated in a more flexible manner. [NY YIMBY]Rey Mashayekhi
