Architects Tout Gansevoort Market Plan As Return to History

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.

Reveal For Nine-Story, 150,000 Square-Foot Office Building At 61 Ninth Avenue, Chelsea

In the first half of 2015, YIMBY reported on filings for a nine-story, mixed-use commercial building at 61 9th Avenue, on the corner of West 15th Street in Chelsea, and now Crain’s has the first rendering of the project. The entire structure will measure 153,754 square feet in total, and there will be 115,000 and 37,000 square feet of boutique office and retail space, respectively. Retail will be located on the cellar through the second floor. Rafael Viñoly is behind the design, and Vornado Realty Trust and Aurora Capital are developing. Demolition permits were filed in December to remove the existing lumber shop and billboard sign. Groundbreaking is expected in mid-2016, with completion scheduled for early 2018.

Permits Filed & New Look: Solar Carve, 40 10th Avenue, Meatpacking District

Renderings for the futuristic Solar Carve at 40-56 Tenth Avenue first surfaced three years ago, long before the city shot down a variance that would’ve allowed the developer to build bigger on a rather challenging site in Meatpacking. William Gottlieb Real Estate finally got approval for the office tower last year, and now they’ve filed new building applications for the tower next to the High Line.
