Eight Midtown office buildings and hotels are being considered for landmarking status.
“The owners have received a letter from city Landmarks stating that the buildings are being considered for landmark designation, and requesting a meeting with the owners,” spokeswoman Lisi de Bourbon said.
The landmarking efforts were prompted by the proposed East Midtown Rezoning that will affect the core of Midtown around Grand Central Terminal and as far north as 57th Street. Outdated properties in the up-zoning district could be torn down and enlarged beyond their current square footage.
