Now we can consult a list that specifies how many drawings made by FLLW exist for each project:

https://findingaids.library.columbia.edu/staging/ead/nnc-a/ldpd_12471376/summary

We'll know exactly how many drawings we need to have the complete puzzle of a project and it is also possible to see the drawings asking for an appointment

Do any of you live in NY?

No
I asked this question recently in an email to the archives.
The response was: no plans anytime soon to digitize the material

But I've wondered if they were heavily petitioned for certain very specific items ... if they might

I was surprised to see that the American Systems Built Houses is the project in the archive with the largest single amount of drawing items: 992

The Guggenheim is second with 774, the Imperial Hotel is third with 705 drawing items.
San Marcos in the Desert has 208
Midway Gardens has 195
Larkin: 169
Fallingwater: 166 (not including guest house)
Hannah House: 118 (not including guest house)
Coonley (main house): 109
Unity Temple: 89
Robie: 44
