Morris Adjmi-Designed Flatiron Condos Win Approval

Architect Morris Adjmi has a penchant for charming the Landmarks Preservation Commission. So, while his proposal for two connected structures at West 21st and 22nd streets was not approved the first time it was presented to the Commission back in September, it would not be denied twice. Adjmi took the LPC's advice and narrowed the windows at the 22nd Street base in order to give it a more vertical look and also increased the ratio of metal to stone. "The applicant has [done] everything we asked," commented commissioner Joan Gerber. Commissioner Michael Devonshire remarked that it was "nice to see a building in the hands of a master." The plans were approved unanimously.
