Earlier this year, the Landmarks Preservation Commission reviewed proposals from BKSK Architects to renovate and convert the historic Margaret Louisa Home in Union Square into a hotel. The design team returned to the LPC with updated proposals following feedback and criticism of the original designs. Located at 16 East 16th Street, the six-story Margaret Louisa Home was completed in 1891 and included 78 bedrooms, parlor and reception rooms, private and public dining spaces, and laundry facilities for over 100 women who lived in the building.
16 East 16th Street
New York City’s Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) will decide the fate of a new nine-story hotel to be constructed within the historic Margaret Louisa Home in Manhattan. The existing six-story structure at 16 East 16th Street was completed in 1891 and included 78 bedrooms, parlor and reception rooms, private dining areas, a public restaurant, and laundry facilities for over 100 women who lived in the building.
Permits have been filed for a nine-story mixed-use building at 16 East 16th Street in Union Square, Manhattan. Located between Union Square West and Fifth Avenue, the lot is steps away from the Union Square subway station, serviced by the 4, 5, 6, L, N, Q, R, and W trains. Trevor Stahelski under the Gramercy Park House LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
