The Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) will use Zoom, a teleconferencing application that allows applicants and members of the public to participate using either the Zoom app on their smartphone, computer or by telephone using a dial-in number. Participants, both applicants and members of the public, should watch the LPC live YouTube stream to follow the proceedings. Items will generally be called in the order in that they appear on the Commission’s agenda, but the Commission reserves the right to change the order when necessary; so please tune into the YouTube live stream at least an hour before the item is scheduled.
The public may watch public meetings on the LPC YouTube live stream, but as with all public meetings, may not testify as the hearing is closed. Written comments may be submitted and will be distributed to the Commissioners if received by Noon on the day prior to the public meeting and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Landmark Preservation Commission (LPC) has launched an updated edition of the Permit Application Guide, now named the LPC Permit Guidebook: How to Get Staff-Level Approvals to help applicants file applications that include the correct materials so that staff can review the proposed work and issue a permit more quickly.
The LPC Permit Guidebook, which reflect the new rules and amendments adopted by the Commission in January 2019, focuses on the most common types of work that require a permit, such as window replacement, restoration and additions. It includes new guidance on barrier-free access in order to ensure buildings are accessible, and, for the first time, it also addresses sustainability, resiliency and flood-proofing measures in historic buildings so they may best adapt to the impacts of climate change.

The American Institute of Architects, New York Chapter (AIANY) is expressing concerns regarding the proposed demolition of 270 Park Avenue, formerly known as the Union Carbide Building. Designed in 1961 by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, the building is a notable example of the International Style.
AIANY appreciates the level of discussion and awareness that has been brought to International Style buildings and Modern architecture’s heritage as a result of recent news regarding 270 Park Avenue. The International Style has become widely representative of the modern office building.
