Gansevoort Street Redevelopment Goes Before Landmarks Commission

(DNAINFO) Danielle Tcholakian | November 9, 2015 — The Gansevoort Street project that prompted a West Village resident to “flip the bird” at a developer at a neighborhood meeting faces a public hearing before the Landmarks Preservation Commission Tuesday afternoon.

Aurora Capital Associates is redeveloping the entire south side of Gansevoort Street from Ninth Avenue to Washington Street, in a project that involves demolishing two buildings and will result in five buildings ranging in height from one story to eight stories.

The design, by BKSK Architects, has already been reviewed multiple times to praise by senior LPC staff, Aurora developer Jared Epstein said over the summer.

The presentation to the neighborhood in August had incorporated the feedback of those staffers, BKSK architect Harry Kendall said at the time.
