The building was purchased by celebrity stylist Chaz Dean to act as his NYC retail store, salon, and private residence.  Once Crown was retained we identified that the proposed 2nd floor use was not permitted as-of-right.  In order to obtain a 2nd floor commercial use for the client we petitioned the Landmarks Preservation Commission and City Planning Commission for a Special Permit to modify the use of the 2nd through the ULURP process. This requires that we bring the building to a sound first class historic condition and establish continuing maintenance program for the building, in perpetuity.
