They were also there to present a proposal to replace the existing arched windows on the east, west and south facades of the building.
The company is hoping to remove the leaded glass window panels, and install single light wood windows with a cast stone diamond platter in the front.
CB1 voted in favor of the proposal and the Landmark's Preservation Commission (LPC) heard the proposal at a public hearing, which was held on Tuesday, February 21.
Regarding the rest of the renovation, representatives from Dome Voyager LLC. said that it was moving along very well.
The renovation includes transforming the building into an event space and museum, but some community board members questioned how likely the plans are for the space to become a museum.
A Dome Voyager representative noted that the space will not be a museum in the typical sense of the word, but rather, an extra, alternative, after-hours type of open space to allow local artists to display their work. They stressed that the building would be used primarily as an events space.
Details concerning the museum portion, such as admission price, types of artwork, and if it would be open to the public, are undecided as of yet.
As parking concerns arose at the meeting, representatives said that specifics on where parking will be located are also undecided.
But when the architects visited the board in May last year, they noted that the restored building will have two levels of underground parking, which will be accessed through a vacant lot behind the building on Bedford Avenue. They noted that they were also planning on implementing a new entry.
The restoration has been in progress for almost a year.
