Paul's Beekman Pad Eyes Landmark Status

New, 2 comments

Think the Landmarks Preservation Commission is always anti-rooftop addition? Not so! Paul Rudolph's 23 Beekman Place was calendered yesterday for landmark consideration. The crazy topping to the UES brownstone was built in 1977, but Rudolph tinkered with it a bunch. ArchPaper's Matt Chaban writes: "Commissioner Pablo Vengoechea remarked that were Rudolph applying for the addition today, there is no way the commission would support it. It was also pointed out that the interiors, once a testing ground for Rudolph's design ideas, would not be landmark in light of a rather drastic renovation earlier this decade." [ArchPaper]
