It’s been almost two years since we last checked in on 76 8th Avenue, on the corner of West 14th Street in the Meatpacking District. A few aspects of the building have changed since YIMBY’s last report. Mainly, it will now be a ten-story building, not twelve. This means the project will lose 7,000 square feet, reducing the total area to 30,000 square feet. And now, we have a first glimpse at renderings.
YIMBY reported on new building applications for 336 East 112th Street back in September of 2015. Now, with construction well underway, we have full renderings for the project, which is being designed by Tribeca-based TRA Studio Architecture.
