As I wrote in the last issue, developer Morgan Management is seeking approval to build apartments on the site of the Monroe Voiture veterans’ club at 933 University Avenue, immediately east of our historic property. The immediacy and grave impact of this proposal demands our attention. Despite vocal opposition from neighborhood residents, community groups, and George Eastman House, the developer is proceeding with a revised application to demolish the club’s historic structure and construct a four-story apartment building with 102 units—only eight fewer than they originally proposed.

Beyond the theater’s plush new seats, fresh coat of paint, new carpets, and enhanced lighting, the Dryden has undergone some serious technological overhauling and upgrading both up in the projection booth and behind the screen (did we mention the screen is new too?).

George Eastman House faces a serious threat to our immediate surroundings, which play an essential role in preserving Mr. Eastman’s estate and the experience of those visiting our landmark property. The proposal called for the four-story building to be set back only 20 feet from the property’s perimeter and for removal of almost all of the existing trees (see aerial photo, right). Such a structure would have a dramatically adverse impact on the viewshed and surroundings of the Eastman House property.
