Landmarks Applications

Certificate of Appropriateness

Landmarks Applications: Certificate of Appropriateness

appropriate [uh-proh-pree-it] suitable or fitting for a particular purpose …but I thought that was a landmark?!? Have you ever wondered how neighbors in landmark buildings can add rooftop additions?  Rear yard extensions?  Alter stoops?  Even the staunchest of preservationists knows that in vibrant communities, changes in the built environment are inevitable. Although landmarks are protected, they are not frozen in time. They depend on our constant stewardship for appropriate maintenance and change. When owners of landmark buildings wish to make changes, they need to apply to the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission for what’s called a Certificate of Appropriateness (C of A). LW’s C of A Committee works with building owners and their architects to advise on design and protect the integrity of our constantly evolving neighborhood.

A public hearing on the revised rules amendments proposed by the LPC was held in October, 2018. The revised rules can be read here.  In 2019, the LPC issued the LPC PERMIT GUIDEBOOK: How to Get Staff Level Approvals.

COVID-19 Response

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Landmarks Preservation Commission has temporarily closed its office at 1 Centre Street, but continues to provide services by email and phone.

Public Hearings/Meetings via Zoom and YouTube

The LPC has resumed public hearings/meetings via video conferencing app Zoom, which allows for testimony and full public participation. The public can watch a hearing on the LPC’s YouTube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/user/nyclpc and participate in the hearing by following the instructions: https://www1.nyc.gov/site/lpc/hearings/hearings.page.
