Chelsea Celeb Townhouse Taking Roof Risks?

New, 1 comment

New Chelsea celebrity dorm 436 West 20th Street has Courtney Love, $100,000 chandeliers, and a butler?but does its roofline flout the law? That's what blog ArchiTakes suspects, arguing through photo essay that the new roofline is higher than the old and violates the developer's permit from the Landmarks Preservation Commission: "Bolla appears to be setting the stage for a raised roof, and maximum exploitation of a penthouse he clearly views as a cash cow." Ruh-roh. But nobody tells a Sarkozy brother to keep to his rooflines! [ArchiTakes; previously]
