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.
In November, a plan for a commercial revitalization of the south side of a block of Gansevoort Street, in the Meatpacking District, went before the Landmarks Preservation Commission. In a rare, but hardly unheard of occurrence, the hearing was paused before the commissioners could discuss the proposal. With the continuation of that session likely to come soon, YIMBY sat down with the architects behind it to talk about its place in the history of the area.
Back in November, YIMBY posted the first renderings for 76 Eleventh Avenue, which is being developed by HFZ Capital. Now, we have a new set of images for the project, which is being designed by Bjarke Ingels Group. They show major tweaks to the formerly jigsaw-like design, and accompanied EB-5 materials for the project sent to YIMBY.
