No Green Light for 980 Madison

upper east side 980 madison

980 Madison Avenue was back at the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) yesterday, but it did not yet get the go-ahead from the Commissioners. The project had been significantly redesigned after the LPC rejected the original proposal by Norman Foster to build a 30-story glass addition on top of the 1949 Parke-Bernet Galleries last year.

The re-conceptualized proposal for a four-story addition was originally presented to the LPC in June. Today, the architects presented additional modifications to this design, primarily a lightening of the color of the addition’s bronze cladding. Since several Commissioners were unable to make the hearing, the LPC decided to delay the vote on the project.
