In 1911, the infamous Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire claimed 146 lives, most of whom were young immigrant women.

A new proposal to merge and renovate 36 and 38 West 10th Street is set to be reviewed by the LPC today. Located along West 10th street between 5th Avenue and 6th Avenue in Greenwich Village, the project is composed of two five-story brownstones, each with six units apiece, which will be turned into a single mansion. The revisions are being carried out by John Ike of Ike Kligerman Barkley Architects. The developer of the project is Tom Van Loben Sels.
At the intersection of Broadway and East 11th Street andon the edge of Greenwich Village, a new boutique office will soon rise at 799 Broadway thanks to a $70 million purchase by Columbia Property Trust, according to Crain’s.

The current structure today will eventually be demolished to make way for the new glass building that will span around 180,000 square feet, and stand 12 stories tall.
A new hero shot has been revealed for 809 Broadway, a 15-story mixed-use tower rising in Greenwich Village, Manhattan. Construction has topped out, and façade installation is underway, meaning completion by the end of year is likely. The structure is just a few blocks away from Union Square, the fourth busiest subway station in New York in 2017, serviced by the 4, 5, 6, N, Q, R, W, and L trains. IDM Capital is responsible for the development, which hopes to satisfy the demands of the City’s expanding Silicon Alley.
