NoHo Building Update

NoHo building has sparked many meetings January through March at Community Board 2, Landmarks, Board of Standards and Appeals and City Planning Commission. Here’s an update.

Landmarks Preservation Commission 

Landmark App-25 Bleecker25 Bleecker St.:  On Tuesday, Feb. 4th, an application was heard to reconstruct the front and rear facade at 25 Bleecker St.  NoHo-Bowery Stakeholders and other Bleecker and Bond St. residents met Sunday, Feb 2 to discuss testimony delivered at LPC.    CB#2 Landmarks Committee denied the application. NoHo-Bowery Stakeholdeers letter.  LPC asked the applicants to reconsider their design feeling it was not contextual to the block.  There will be a presentation at Landmarks on March 4th, approx 10am of the new design.
27 East 4th St.: (next to the Merchant’s House Museum). An LPC hearing on Feb. 11th revealed altered plans, including a reduction to 10 floors or 91′ in height.   There were also design changes on the east side wall which the Commission viewed favorably since, being next to the Merchant’s House, it would always be exposed.  You can read more at GVSHP.

25 Great Jones St. 2014?

25 Great Jones/22 Bond St.:  The new design by BKSK Architects was approved at Landmarks in Nov. 2013.  It is close to approval at the BSA.  Construction is expected to begin in mid-march.  (See more below)

37 Great Jones St.:  Landmarks approved the conversion of this industrially used building in January.  Restoration at the front of the building will return it to its original details.  There will be a small roof-top addition and small temporary buildings in the rear will be removed to accommodate new windows at the rear and an upper-story balcony.


Building_688 Broadway688 Broadway: All systems go.  This new addition to NoHo designed by BKSK Architects (25 Bond, 25 Great Jones/22 Bond) has Landmarks and the City Planning Commission’s OK.  Work should begin in the spring.  We understand that a Memorandum of Agreement regarding construction protocols is being signed with contiguous building(s).

25 Great Jones/22 Bond St.: Construction is scheduled to begin March 14th.  SDS has yet to sign the Memorandum of Understanding with NoHo-Bowery Stakeholders regarding construction protections and protocols.  Hopefully there will be better news on this soon.
