Winter Garden Woes

New, 5 comments

The debate rages on about the future of the grand staircase in the World Financial Center's Winter Garden. Owner Brookfield Properties hopes a renovation would make expiring leases at the building easier to fill, but City Planning Commission chair Amanda Burden and the community have objected to a Winter Garden redo. Burden probably doesn't have the power to block the removal of the staircase, the Journal notes, but she could block the pavilion that's planned to enclose the subway entrance. Hey, it is called the Winter Garden. [WSJ; previously]
