A warehouse that’s becoming a Restoration Hardware in the Meatpacking District has been hit by two major controversies in the last year, but construction continues to chug forward at 9-19 Ninth Avenue, on the corner of Little West 12th Street. Tectonic brings us an update.
While the far West Side has its fair share of mega-projects, the scale of development in lower West Chelsea and the Meatpacking District is generally more subdued. The one major exception to that rule is at 76 11th Avenue, where a development team led by HFZ has an assemblage with 800,000 square feet of air rights, with plans by Bjarke Ingels Group previously revealed by YIMBY last year. Now, thanks to a tipster, we have a fresh set of images showing the fine-tuning occurring across several aspects of the design, including the retail podium and crown.
Big changes are coming to the Meatpacking District. On Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission, after three sessions, approved redevelopment of the block ranging from 46 to 74 Gansevoort Street. That’s between Greenwich Street and Washington Street, in the Gansevoort Market Historic District.
A commercial building in the Meatpacking District is set to get some rooftop art. Last Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved a proposal to install an art mural on the side of a bulkhead atop 875 Washington Street, located between West 13th Street and West 14th Street in the Gansevoort Market Historic District.
A combination of zoning and landmarking makes it tough to build office buildings in the Meatpacking District. Despite the hurdles, 860 Washington Street has taken shape at the corner of West 13th Street. YIMBY reader Tectonic recently stopped by the site, and today we have a look at the construction progress.
