YoungWoo & Associates and RXR Realty have presented updated plans for the renovation of Pier 57, an abandoned 560,000 square-foot former waterway terminal, near the Meatpacking District. According to Curbed, the rooftop will operate as a 1.8-acre public park, with 13,399 square feet of green space, a restaurant pavilion and wooden stadium. It was also previously reported a 100,000 square-foot food court is planned, and Google is expected to take 250,000 square feet of office space. A public hearing on the project is expected in the coming months. Completion is slated for 2017.
Last week, neighbors in the Meatpacking District expressed their dissatisfaction about plans to redevelop a row of low-slung commercial buildings on Gansevoort Street between Washington and Greenwich Streets, and the Villager offered a glimpse of how Aurora Capital hopes to transform the block. Now YIMBY can reveal a full set of renderings showing the developer’s vision for this prominent corner near the High Line.
William Gottlieb Real Estate and Aurora Capital Associates are planning to redevelop the low-rise market buildings spanning 46-74 Gansevoort Street, in the Meatpacking District, according to The Villager. Plans, filed this past June, call for an eight-story building at 70-74 Gansevoort, and expansions to three and four stories to existing two-story buildings at 60-68 Gansevoort.
Demolition of the structures at Nos. 50 and 70-74 is the first step, and any alteration or removal will have to be approved by the LPC. The properties are zoned for hotels, offices, retail and light manufacturing, and roughly 111,000 square feet of space is proposed. BKSK is the architect of record.
Restoration Hardware is planning to convert the five-story, 25,000 square-foot building at 55 Gansevoort Street, in the Meatpacking District, into a 14-key boutique hotel. According to Crain’s, the ground floor of the building will feature a restaurant. Delshah Capital owns the five-story building, but Restoration Hardware — whose flagship store is located around the corner of 9th Avenue — has leased the entire property.
A landmarked collection of buildings in the Meatpacking District is about to get a dramatic revamp. RKF and Tavros Capital Partners are marketing the 38,000-square-foot retail space on the prime corner of 14th Street, Ninth Avenue and Hudson Street, and they’ve sent along renderings of what the property could look like for a new commercial tenant.
