BKSK Architects will again appear before the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) seeking approvals to construct a sizable commercial expansion and restoration in Manhattan’s Gansevoort Historic District, also known as the Meatpacking District. The historic row townhomes carry an address of 44-54 Ninth Avenue and 351-355 West 14th Street at the corner of 14th Street and Ninth Avenue.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use building at 538 Hudson Street in Manhattan’s West Village. Located at the intersection of Charles Street and Hudson Street, the corner lot is a ten-minute walk to the West 4 Street-Washington Square subway station, serviced by the A, B, C, D, E, F, and M trains. Cayre Investments under the 540 Hudson Street LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
BKSK Architects‘ approved plans that were last submitted to the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC), which call for a renovation and expansion of 53 Pearl Street in DUMBO, Brooklyn, await construction. The team revealed its latest design for the 140-year-old Italianate-style structure a year ago after initial plans from March 2019 that called for a tall multi-story addition at the rear of the property, were denied for being both “out of scale” and “contextually inappropriate.” The building was once a factory for the Masury Paint Company and was transformed into rental apartments several years ago.
Work is nearing completion on the extensive renovation and expansion of the historic Tammany Hall headquarters building at 44 Union Square. Designed by BKSK Architects and developed by Reading International (RDI) with Edifice Real Estate Partners as the owner’s representative, the project involved the addition of a multi-story space-frame dome atop the 90-year-old structure. CNY Group is in charge of construction at the Union Square site, which sits at the corner of East 17th Street and Park Avenue South. Reading International purchased the edifice 18 years ago and received a $57.5 million loan secured by Bank OZK and Fisher Brothers from Lionheart Strategic Management, LLC, an affiliate of Fisher Brothers.
