46-74 Gansevoort Street

Eight-Story Commercial Redevelopment Planned At 46-74 Gansevoort Street, Meatpacking District

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.

Meatpacking District’s Pier55 Awaiting Final Approvals, Landscaping Tweaked

While the proposed park off the Meatpacking District, dubbed Pier55, waits for the Army Corps of Engineers and State Department’s approval, the project’s landscape architecture firm Mathews Nielsen has made small tweaks to the design. The park’s highest elevation has been lowered to 62 feet, according to Curbed, and vegetation will be very diverse. An amphitheater will be located near the back, and federal funds have been allotted for the park’s 13th Street pedestrian bridge. Construction is expected to begin in 2016.
