Just In: 10 New Landmarks Designated

Thirteen sites across all five boroughs

December 14, 2016

The Landmarks Preservation Commission’s (LPC) Backlog Initiative continued Tuesday with the designation of ten new properties. Thirteen sites located across the five boroughs were on the agenda. However, the LPC chose to postpone one decision and removed another two from the calendar entirely.

Just In: 10 New Landmarks Designated
Bergdorf Goodman

Brooklyn

183-195 Broadway Building*
St. Barbara’s Roman Catholic Church (138 Bleecker Street)*

Bronx

Immaculate Conception Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary (375-395 E 150th Street)
Removed from calendar, designation faced owner opposition

Manhattan

Excelsior Power Company Building (33-43 Gold Street)

Loew’s 175th Street Theater (4140 Broadway)*
Bergdorf Goodman (754 5th Avenue)
Interborough Rapid Transit Powerhouse (850 12th Avenue)*
Postponed due to “regulatory framework” discussions with owner Consolidated Edison
Edgar J. Kaufmann Conference Rooms, Lecture Hall, & Elevator Lobby (809 United Nations Plaza)*

The Immaculate Conception Church and Edgar J. Kaufmann rooms are now vulnerable to unchecked alteration and demolition. But Tuesday’s decisions (combined with the designated sites in April and June) bring the total to 27 landmarks listed since the start of the initiative last year.
