It took two tries, but an office building planned for Soho can now move forward with the city’s blessing.

The Landmarks Preservation Commission approved the project at 419-421 and 423 Broadway on Tuesday, according to Curbed. The agency previously rejected the building for being too tall and out of scale for Soho, but architect Morris Adjmi changed the design enough to win them over.

The project from owner United American Land will now be eight stories tall and no longer have loggias on top, which Landmarks members disliked. The floor-to-floor height and rooftop bulkhead have also both been reduced.

The development also includes a three-story red brick project at 423 Broadway. Both buildings will include ground-floor retail with offices above.

UAL, a Soho-based company, bought the parcels at the intersection of Canal Street and Broadway for $28 million last year.  Albert Laboz, principal of UAL, told The Real Deal that he viewed the corner as “an anchor for lower Soho.” [Curbed]Eddie Small
