Recent photos of 70-74 Gansevoort Street show the commercial development beginning its vertical ascent over the Meatpacking District. Located along Gansevoort Street, this is one of several buildings among the Gansevoort Street redevelopment project that spans the length between Washington Street and Greenwich Street. Set to stand roughly 112 feet tall, it is being designed by BKSK Architects and developed by Aurora Capital and William Gottlieb Real Estate.

The Jeanne Gang-designed structure will span 139,000 square feet in all, and is being co-developed by Aurora Capital and William Gottlieb Real Estate.
A part of Chelsea Piers that saw historic ocean liners RMS Lusitania and RMS Mauretania sail out of New York, as well as the arrival of The Titanic’s survivors aboard The Carpathia in 1912, is finally ready to begin its new life. Cunard’s former Pier 54 is now being transformed into an iconic floating park above the Hudson River called Pier 55, designed by Thomas Heatherwick.
Pending LPC Approval, 405-409 West 13th Street could undergo a fresh renovation of its aging storefront, and a vertical enlargement from three to six stories.
