Yes but if the building is protected, they would have to get approval from the land mark commission. They have granted approval on many projects but some times, they will get denied. All depends on the scope of the project, design, to what extent the alteration or conversion or addition will impact the original land marked property/parcel. Cases will vary, with length of determination ranging from a month to a few months.

The way it works, if a building is not land marked, its chop-chop square time for the tower/structure, even if its a beauty. See the Bancroft Building. That was demolished. Shame, but it is what it is.
