The penthouse received unanimous approval. How'd it get there? By removing the roof that so troubled the LPC and adding brick to match the rest of the building and a pergola, in the words of the architect, "to create shadow and to give it life." And by talking a lot about the revised rooftop's geometric look, complete with cubes and Japanese Wabi design.
There's no word on when the construction will happen or what this space will actually be used for (DeNiro's house? Special events? Charlie Sheen?) and the hotel's website offers no further clues only saying the penthouse is "To Be Announced."
Meanwhile, a courtyard room at the hotel starts at $495 a night for 325-sq.ft. of space, free wireless internet and complimentary mini-bar amenities.
