The Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) recently approved the design and construction of a five-story single-family townhouse at 110 West 88th Street in the Central Park West Historic District on Manhattan’s Upper West Side.

Designed by DXA Studio, the structure will comprise 4,778 square feet. In January, the LPC reviewed and preliminarily rejected the proposals and instructed the architect to revisit the coloration of the structure’s limestone façade, cornice details, fenestration, and spandrel proportions.

The design team responded to each of the LPC’s critiques and successfully achieved a certificate of appropriateness. The most noticeable modification to the façade is a warmer toned travertine panels with exaggerated striations.

The team also increased the height of the hopper windows that will now be more in line with the one-over-one openings of the surrounding properties, added newly designed stone cornices for increased depth and shadows, increased the overall frame and thinned out slat screens, and increased pediment area.

No groundbreaking date has been announced.

    A beautiful, well-detailed addition that is modern but fits perfectly with the historic neighoborhood.

  3. This is what the LPC is wasting its time splitting hairs with while they allow the Bancroft Building get the wrecking ball.

    I guess the 2 stories on top of the home, that block the long-time residents of the apartment building to the east are not of concern to the Landmarks commission. Seems like the monstrosity of the 58 story building at 69th and Amsterdam, whose developer’s donations can be traced exactly to Scott Stringer’s campaign a few years ago, can be thanked for the recent blatant disregard for height zoning on the upper west side. This townhouse is for one family. The massive new skyscrapers all over New York for anyone who is a top 1% player, continues to push the middle class out. The Stratified economic situation in NYC is bad for local businesses, and our economy as these buyers flee the city at any point.
