The Landmarks Preservation Commission will this week review updated proposals to renovate an existing commercial office building and construct a ground-up ten-story building at 122 Fifth Avenue in Union Square, Manhattan. The T-shaped property is located within the Ladies Mile Historic District and was originally completed in 1899 by architect Robert Maynicke and real estate developer Henry Corn.
BKSK Architects will again appear before the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) seeking approvals to construct a sizable commercial expansion and restoration in Manhattan’s Gansevoort Historic District, also known as the Meatpacking District. The historic row townhomes carry an address of 44-54 Ninth Avenue and 351-355 West 14th Street at the corner of 14th Street and Ninth Avenue.
The Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) is now considering proposals to improve accessibility for mobility-challenged visitors to enter the historic Central Park Dairy and the Conservatory Garden.
YIMBY took a quick look at the current state of 21 Greenwich Avenue. Proposals from BKSK Architects call for a renovation of the 179-year-old corner property and the construction of an attached five-story edifice that would replace an abutting one-story structure. The new building will have a mixed façade of floor-to-ceiling glass, steel details, and brick masonry. The design firm previously submitted its plans to the Landmarks Preservation Commission and is awaiting approval. Higgins Quasebarth & Partners is credited as the preservation consultant for 21 Greenwich Avenue.
The Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) will again review proposals to construct a 20,000-square-foot private residence at 11 Hubert Street in Manhattan’s TriBeCa West Historic District. Designed by E. Cobb Architects, this iteration of proposals includes updates to the structure’s glass facade, ground-floor privacy paneling, and cornice materials.
