110 year old town house in central Reykjavik to be turned into three story building

The Reykjavik Planning and Environmental Committee has put forward a change to the land-use plan of Hverfisgata 41 in central Reykjavik. This means that small, corrogated iron clad town houses, something which characterised the street will diminish. 

This is reported in today's Morgunblaðið. 

The house was built in 1908 and contains four apartments.  In the new plan the city wishes to increase the utilzation ratio of the land plot, that apartments be increased by three and a balcony to be placed on the north side of the building.
