Owners and Developers face many challenges when altering New York City landmark buildings or developing new buildings in landmark districts – including preservation concerns and the overall appropriateness of the proposed work.  These challenges intensify with the size and scope of the project.  Landmark sites also provide development opportunities through air rights transfers and, lately, cantilevers.  This program will explore the application of the “appropriateness” standard in recent projects and analyze the interplay between preservation and the development process.

Our discussion will address:

  • The Appropriateness Standard;
  • Process for Review of Proposed Alterations and Additions; 
  • Transfer of Air Rights from a Landmark;  and
  • Recent Projects and Proposals
