Yesterday, YIMBY featured a first glimpse at the plans for 76 8th Avenue, on the corner of 14th Street, at the crossroads of the Meatpacking District and the West Village. Today, we have the full rendering for the project, designed by Gene Kaufman, which will dramatically improve a corner that has long been under-built.
It’s been almost two years since we last checked in on 76 8th Avenue, on the corner of West 14th Street in the Meatpacking District. A few aspects of the building have changed since YIMBY’s last report. Mainly, it will now be a ten-story building, not twelve. This means the project will lose 7,000 square feet, reducing the total area to 30,000 square feet. And now, we have a first glimpse at renderings.
YIMBY last reported on 40 Tenth Avenue when new building applications were filed for the site, in November of 2015. Now, with demolition of an old three-story warehouse complete, construction on the office project is finally getting underway. The progress on excavation has been substantial, and piling and caissons are also beginning to appear. Jeanne Gang Architects is behind the design, and the latest photos come from YIMBY Forum user JC_Heights.
Home design company Restoration Hardware is trying to expand, with a hotel under development at 55 Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District. That plan, however, needs some work as the Landmarks Preservation Commission did not grant a certificate of appropriateness on Tuesday.
One of the largest new office projects in the Meatpacking District is finally taking shape. Rockpoint Group is knitting together historic warehouse buildings and new steel and glass at 412 West 15th Street, and photographer Tectonic has the latest on the site between Ninth and Tenth avenues.
