There have been murmurs of concern about the rooftop renovation at the Hotel Chelsea, but beyond that, we hadn't heard many specifics about the "subtle" Gene Kaufman renovation currently in the works. Happily, DNAinfo got its hands on some renderings of the revised facade, which includes a new awning, lighting, and storefronts. The renderings don't show much of the rooftop addition, and don't give us any clues as to what's going on inside (aside from potential evictions and destructoporn). So what's the preliminary verdict?
