New York City’s Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) will soon review proposals to renovate and expand a row of historic structures in Manhattan’s Gansevoort Market Historic District, otherwise known as the Meatpacking District. The properties are located at 44-54 Ninth Avenue and 351-355 West 14th Street at the corner of 14th Street and Ninth Avenue.
Permits have been filed for a 50-story mixed-use skyscraper at 45-03 23rd Street in Hunters Point, Queens. Located at the intersection of 23rd Street and 45th Avenue, the corner lot is steps from the Court Square subway station, serviced by the E, M, G, and 7 trains. Tavros Capital under the Court Square 45th Avenue LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Dubbed “The Dime,” 277 South Fifth Street will be a new 264-foot tall residential tower in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The reinforced concrete building is close to topping off behind the Dime Savings Bank landmark. The project sits on a 50,000 square foot site, almost an acre in size, and will span just over 350,000 square feet.
Williamsburg is an incredible tapestry of diverse architectural styles. One of the most prominent examples of its historic past is the Dime Savings Bank of Williamsburgh, located right by the first exit of the Williamsburg Bridge into Brooklyn, which ensures that hundreds of thousands of people see it every day. The building is about to be reborn thanks to Charney Construction and Development and Tavros Capital Partners, with a full restoration and refurbishment planned for the Bank, adjacent to which a new 22-story residential tower will also rise.
Today, YIMBY has a photo update on the site of the Dime Savings Bank of Williamsburgh. Foundation work is moving along for the soon-to-be 22-story residential building that will rise adjacent to the historic structure, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
