Untitled-2A proposed NoHo office building designed by architect Morris Adjmi got the thumbs up Tuesday from the Landmarks Preservation Commission.

Located within the NoHo Historic District Extension, 363 Lafayette Street is set to rise 10 stories.  Earlier plans flummoxed commissioners who rejected Adjmi’s design, including double-height setbacks.

The latest iteration reduced those setbacks. Sections between floors, featuring a basketweave pattern, are now two feet tall versus three.

The site, the former home of Jones Diner, has been owned since the 1940s by Samuel Rosenblatt’s Olmstead Properties TRData LogoTINY, which shopped the property last year. Instead of selling the parcel, Olmsted leased the site to developer Charles Blaichman’s CB Properties, which inked a 49-year lease for $21.1 million, according to public records.

On Tuesday, Commissioner Frederick Bland lamented the “terrible” process of nit-picking Adjmi’s work, while others called it beautiful, appropriate and “kind of neat.” [DNAinfo] — E.B. Solomont
