The Landmarks Preservation Commission has refused a proposed addition to 827-831 Broadway for the second time, obliging its designers DXA Studio to reimagine their approach once more. The plan would add offices, retail, and community space inside and above two Italianate structures built between 1866 and 1867. The source of the controversy is the addition of four floors on top of the historic buildings. Samson Klugman of Quality Capital and Leo Tsimmer of Caerus Group purchased the pair in 2015 for $60 million. They initially filed permits for a 300-foot-tall commercial tower, but that was stopped when the LPC granted the extant structures landmark status.
New building applications have revealed that a rumored high-end office development is moving forward at 799 Broadway, in Greenwich Village, Manhattan. Global architecture firm Perkins+Will will be in charge of its design.
New renderings are out for 540 Hudson Street, a seven-story mixed-use building proposed in Greenwich Village. The site is two blocks away from the Christopher Street Station, serviced by the PATH Train, and the Christopher Street Subway Station, serviced by the 1 and 2 trains. The project would fill a vacant lot in the heart of the village. Morris Adjmi Architects will be responsible for the undulating design.
Four months after the structure topped out, we have an update for construction at 21 East 12th Street in the Greenwich Village, Manhattan. Installation of the façade is underway, having now reached up to the fifth floor.
Permits have been filed for a 13-story mixed-use building in Greenwich Village, Manhattan. The development will sit at the crossroads between Chelsea, the West Village, and Union Square. Stops from just about every Subway line are nearby, and Gemini Rosemont will be responsible for development.
