Have you seen this one from the cathedral-basilica of Covington in Kentucky. Has this appeared on the thread before? Apologies if yes. This is a bizarely two-headed scheme (file under pointlessly conservative reorderings): From what I can understand of the literature surrounding this the diocese retained a Vosko-like clone to direct the scheme. When lay opposition mounted to make a defence of the baldachino and stalls the plans were redrawn and a compromise made. Nevertheless, the very beautiful and unusual altar rails and gates perished. But, still, the new high altar is five steps up; how V2 is that?!
This is a strange church altogether. I note on their website that they have an old rite mass every Sunday: A case of liturgical schizophrenia.
