Permits have been filed for a new building at 799 Fort Washington Avenue, in the Met’s Cloisters Museum, in Fort Tyron Park, Fort George, Manhattan. The site is within the Cloister’s current site. The Dyckman Street Subway Station is nearby, serviced by the A trains. The Metropolitan Museum of Art is responsible for the development.

The 13-foot tall structure will yield 280 square feet for the institution, to function as a horticultural greenhouse. This is the first new building on record to be added to the museum grounds.

Walter B. Melvin Associates, whose main focus is on restoration, will be responsible for the design.

The Met and Walter B. Melvin Associates have not responded yet to comments.

  1. Please pardon me for using your space: You make I do what I want, I mean to reading and commenting.

  2. Google Maps show 799 Ft Washington as next to the 190th street A train station.

  3. Just 280 square feet?
