Landmarks commissions OKs shorter St. Luke’s tower

Rendering of 100 Barrow Street

The proposed West Village building for the Church of St. Luke in the Fields will now stand three stories shorter than its original design as a result of a new ruling by the Landmarks Preservation Committee.
The commission, which rejected the church’s proposal to build a 15-story, 153-foot-tall tower atop a parking lot at 487 Hudson Street in March, unanimously approved the new design on Tuesday. The tower will be 121 feet tall, or three stories shorter, than the original design. Despite the revision, the building’s overall size actually increased by 1,400 square feet, though the number of residential units remains the same.
