A proposal by Todd Zwigard Architects that will go before the New York Landmark Preservation Commission later today has revealed plans to redevelop the currently abandoned Hamilton Theater, at 3560 Broadway between West 146th and West 147th Streets, in Harlem. The interiors would be gutted to make way for commercial space on floors two through four, and retail space on the first floor, combined with major alterations and additions to a connecting structure.

The decorative aspects of the façade will be left unaltered, while the connecting brick building will receive some alterations. Larger windows will be installed along its Northern and Southern sides, as well as an addition to unite the two structures on all four floors.
