Last week, LW! reported on the Landmarks Preservation Commission’s (LPC) public hearing to consider both restoration work and a new addition at the iconic Tavern on the Green building, in Central Park.
Following our post, we received from the project architects a copy of the final project rendering (see below; turns out the image sourced from Curbed.com was an early massing study).
The project was approved by the LPC. According to Dept. of Parks & Recreation staff who’ve presented at various public meetings and forums on this issue, the LPC-approved restoration work and glass pavilion are expected to be completed by mid-2013.
