After the destruction of the original Penn Station, Mayor Robert F. Wagner created the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) in 1965 to prevent the future destruction of significant structures.
In New York City, buildings, interiors and districts can be designated as “landmarked” and require projects to undergo review through LPC, prior to Department of Buildings approval.
We have worked on many LPC designated projects and know the process to navigate successful approvals. Above are samples of some of our projects that just focus on LPC approvals.
During the course of a renovation project, it's common that part of the project affects the exterior and we are required to seek LPC approval, as another part of the process.
