LPC Says No to Foster
At a special hearing on January 16, the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) voted nine to one against the proposal for 980 Madison, Lord Norman Fosterrs 22-story glass tower atop the Parke-Bernet Gallery, a landmarked building in a landmarked neighborhood. Developer Aby Rosen of RFR Holdings has sworn to fight the decision, and said he will not rescale his plans, which was one of the commissionns recommendations for securing its blessings.
