New York City’s Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) will decide the fate of a new nine-story hotel to be constructed within the historic Margaret Louisa Home in Manhattan. The existing six-story structure at 16 East 16th Street was completed in 1891 and included 78 bedrooms, parlor and reception rooms, private dining areas, a public restaurant, and laundry facilities for over 100 women who lived in the building.
Construction has topped out on a six-story, 112-foot-tall building at 70-74 Gansevoort Street. The Meatpacking District property is part of a block-long redevelopment and revitalization of Gansevoort Street between Washington Street and Greenwich Street. BKSK Architects is the designer and Aurora Capital and William Gottlieb Real Estate are developing the mixed-use office project, which sits adjacent to 60-68 Gansevoort Street, a five-story project also part of the neighborhood renewal plan. Both structures are enclosed in scaffolding and thick black netting, while the eastern end can be seen from the High Line with their exteriors preserved.
Permits have been filed for a nine-story mixed-use building at 16 East 16th Street in Union Square, Manhattan. Located between Union Square West and Fifth Avenue, the lot is steps away from the Union Square subway station, serviced by the 4, 5, 6, L, N, Q, R, and W trains. Trevor Stahelski under the Gramercy Park House LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
BKSK Architects will appear before the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission seeking approval for the renovation and expansion of a low-rise property in Greenwich Village. Located on an irregular corner lot at 21 Greenwich Avenue, the two existing structures on the site include a shuttered ground-floor restaurant facing West 10th Street and a separate three-story brick building with additional frontage on Greenwich Avenue. The latter once supported a small ground-floor gallery along Greenwich Avenue and residential area positioned on the second and third floors of the property.
Construction of the curtain wall of 25 Great Jones Street, aka 22 Bond Street, is moving swiftly. The thin steel fins that run vertically down the length of the main elevation in front of the floor-to-ceiling glass panels have been installed. Located in NoHo between Great Jones Street and Bond Street, the 11-story condominium building is designed by BKSK Architects and developed by Second Development Services and Richport Group. The structure will contain six units with prices starting at $9.8 million, and will include a penthouse that reportedly spans about 4,000 square feet.
