UPDATE: This parcel is up for sale again.
BSA variance for a
proposed hotel at 8-10 Bond St.
was heard in February, 2008.
had previously been before the Community
a landmark application when it was to be
a residential co-op and still reflects
variance is for uses below the level of
the second floor that are not allowed in
an M1-5B zone. The six-story
building, plus penthouse and mechanicals
also has two below grade floors, one of
which is proposed as a physical culture
facility, the ground floor with a 2900
sq ft restaurant, a second floor
restaurant with a terrace for outside
dining and a roof for entertaining, food
and beverage service. We were able
to prohibit the granting of any liquor
licenses to the below grade space (currenty
slated for a health club); prohibit use
of the second floor terrace, which
directly abutted two buildings on Great
Jones St. for any service and prohibit
the roof top for any food, beverage or
See the resolution.
The building is designed in
20th Century manufacturing style to compliment other landmarked
buildings on the block. These plans have been by
CB#2 Landmarks and the full Board. The BSA variance is approved.
Construction is underway. Interior work is scheduled to begin in
Bond St. -
aesthetically challenged, and still claiming to be a commercial office
building, Mr. Weiss has somehow eluded LPC and DOB and the Loft Board's
scrutiny.....now isn't that amazing!
372 Lafayette St. -
There seems to be no progress on the originally proposed
building made of Shipping Containers. The businesses currently
on this parcel still have remaining time on their leases.
363 Lafayette @ Great Jones- (SE Corner - former Jones Diner) -
UPDATE: This location may be filing for an as-of-right Office
The owners of 20 Bond St. have won
an application to the Board of Standards and Appeals regarding DOB's
lack of notification to the Landmarks Commission for review of the
amended design and use of this building. BSBK Architects are
expected to file plans for review in the near future.
The Attorney and the applicant made a presentation to NoHo in
May, 2006. Though a confusing design (at best), the proposed
six-story building will preserve many of the lot line windows in
contiguous buildings. The applicant will be seeking a variance
for residential and groundfloor retail and may be amenable to a
restriction on bars or restaurants. The 20 Bond St. Co-Op is
still negotiating with the developer for a more compatible
design. The billboard erected inside the fencing at
this location is, unfortunately, legal !
Parking Lot & Skidmore House
East 4th and Bowery-
this 15-story residential building
with groundfloor retail components is nearly complete.
Construction on the Skidmore House continues.
-(Crunch Gym Building) in
the NoHo I landmark district has made several applications to
landmarks for renovations to groundfloor entrances on Lafayette and
on Broadway as well as a rooftop addition and a request for a 74-711
action for a change of use, which would be for a Hotel.
Landmarks application is currently on hold at Landmarks.
