Set to appear again before the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission, Morris Adjmi Architects has revised its proposal for a mixed-use development in Greenwich Village. The project scope includes a new six-story building at 38 West 8th Street and renovations to a neighboring structure at 177 MacDougal Street.
38 West 8th Street
Morris Adjmi Architects will soon appear before the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission to propose a new mixed-use development in Greenwich Village, Manhattan. If approved, the existing one-story commercial building at 38 West 8th Street would be replaced by a six-story residential property with ground-floor retail and a small community facility.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use development at 38 West 8th Street, one block away from Washington Square Park. The site is off the beaten path for Greenwich Village, and the extant structure is not of noteworthy or particular beauty. Despite this, the odds are high this project will attract undeserved criticism from local rent-gouging homeowners fearful of any increase in neighborhood housing supply. Joseph Straus of the Straus Group is listed as responsible for the development.
