The Landmarks Preservation Commission on Tuesday gave the green light for planned changes to tech billionaire Sean Parker’s Greenwich Village row house.

The changes to five-story home at 38 West 10th Street include a new areaway gate, a new door at the entry and restoring the balcony brackets, New York Yimby reported. There will also be new windows, a new facade and a new roof railing. The roofs of both number 38 and number 36 will be combined, under the plans. Ike Kligerman Barkley is architect of record.

The commissioners voted unanimously to approve the proposal, and LPC Chair Meenakshi Srinivasan described it as “wonderful.”

Sean Parker, founder of Napster and ex-president at Facebook, paid $16.5 million for the five-story, 8,200-square-foot townhouse at 38 West 10th Street last year.  He bought the home through an LLC linked to a Palo Alto accountancy firm. Parker already owns 40 West 10th Street, a three-story home next-door that he paid $20 million for in 2011.

He raised the ire of neighbors in 2014, after allegedly shutting down the street to have high-speed internet installed. [NY YIMBY] — Miriam Hall
