The Commissioners unanimously voted to designate The Educational Building at 70 Fifth Avenue in Greenwich Village and the Holyrood Episcopal Church-Iglesia Santa Cruz at 715 West 179th Street in Washington Heights.
The Landmarks Preservation Commission will tomorrow review proposals from Madison Realty Capital to construct a new 19-story condominium building at 14-16 Fifth Avenue. Designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects with Hill West, the tower would eventually house 20 units, but will first need a Certificate of Appropriateness from the voting commissioners.
DXA Studio will again appear before the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) with updated plans to renovate and expand a landmarked warehouse building near Union Square. The property is located at 827-831 Broadway and was formerly the home of artists Willem and Elaine de Kooning.
Sales have launched for 101 West 14th Street, a 13-story residential project from ODA’s New York design studio on the border of Chelsea and Greenwich Village. Developed by Gemini Rosemont, the structure will yield 44 condominium residences. Nestseekers International’s Serhant Team is leading the sales and marketing of the units, which start at $1.35 million for a one-bedroom home.
The Landmarks Preservation Commission is reviewing applications from Steven Harris Architects to renovate a previously subdivided two-family townhouse into a single-family home at 65 Horatio Street in the West Village. In addition to unifying the townhouse, renderings from the architect reveal a penthouse addition.
