In October, the city’s Public Design Commission voted to erect a large monument within Central Park honoring Sojourner Truth, Susan B. Anthony, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton as pioneers in support of women’s rights. The project team now returns to the Landmark Preservation Commission to request the removal of seven benches immediately in front of the monument and newly revealed text honoring the three historic figures.
GF55 Partners and Urban Standard Capital have revealed detailed renderings of both interior and exterior components of 31 Lispenard Street in Tribeca. The project team first appeared before the Landmarks Preservation Commission to facilitate construction of the seven-story building located on the corner of Church and Lispenard Streets. If approved, the structure is expected to comprise 12,603 square feet. This includes ground-floor retail spanning 1,031 square feet and 10,362 square feet of residential area above.
COOKFOX will again present proposals to the city’s Landmark Preservation Commission to facilitate a transformative renovation of Terminal Warehouse in West Chelsea, Manhattan. The former warehouse building occupies an entire city block spanning Eleventh to Twelfth Avenues and 27th to 28th Streets. When renovations are complete, the property will debut as Central Stores, a mixed-use complex.
The reconstruction of the landmarked Tin Building is making steady progress in Manhattan’s South Street Seaport District. The original structure, made mostly of a wooden frame featuring an exterior of corrugated metal sheets, suffered a major fire in 1995 and later weathered extensive flood damage from Hurricane Sandy in 2012. After approvals from the city’s Landmark Preservation Commission in 2016, the structure was carefully dismantled and is now being rebuilt 33 feet away from its original location, directly to the west of Pier 17. SHoP Architects is in charge of the design and renovations, while the Howard Hughes Corporation is the developer of the project. Plaza Construction is the construction manager for the property.
