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.
Earlier this year, Porcelanosa Group revealed its plans to renovate and expand its existing flagship location at 202-204 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan’s historic Flatiron District. Following an expanded visibility study, the ceramics manufacturer has returned to the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) with revised proposals that reduce street-surface views of the building’s rooftop mechanicals.
Porcelanosa’s prominent flagship location in the Flatiron District of Midtown, Manhattan could receive a major vertical expansion and interior renovation if approved by the Landmarks Preservation Commission. New proposals, dated April 16, 2019, are arranged by CetraRuddy Architecture in collaboration with preservation consultants Higgins Quasebarth and engineering consultants Walter P. Moore.
The Landmarks Preservation Commission will again review proposals from Vornado and Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners to redevelop and expand an existing building in the city’s West Chelsea Historic District.
