HDC Identifies 78 Buildings of Interest in the East Midtown Rezoning Area
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -
Contributed By: Historic Districts Council (New York City)
Website: http://hdc.org/hdc-across-nyc/manhattan/proposed-east-midtown-rezoning-proposed-individual-landmarks

As Mayor Bloomberg and the Department of City Planning (DCP) move forward with their proposal to rezone a large section of East Midtown to accommodate taller buildings, the Historic Districts Council has compiled a list of significant historic buildings in the area that could be endangered by the rezoning.  As New York’s most prominent business district, East Midtown is home to many significant commercial buildings. While there is certainly room for new development and landmarks for our future, it is important to consider the numerous unprotected buildings of quality design in order to preserve the essential character and history of the district. 

The list, which was submitted on October 9, is broken into three general categories: the remaining 19th and early 20th century buildings that recall the residential, pre-Grand Central days of the area; hotels and office buildings that rose around Grand Central as part of Terminal City; and post-World War II modernist office buildings that helped solidify the district’s status as one of the world’s premier business addresses.  The buildings on HDC’s list will also be submitted to the Landmarks Preservation Commission as Requests for Evaluation for landmark designation.
