A residential project by David Chipperfield in New York has finally got the green light.
The West Village Apartment Building in is getting off the ground, following three rejected planning applications.
Originally submitted in July 2016, the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) has finally given the six-story building the go-ahead. Located at 11-19 Jane Street, the site sits within the Greenwich Village Historic District, designated as a historic preservation district by the LPC in 1969.
Originally designed with a light-colored, precast concrete facade, the design was revised over concerns that it would clash with the historic neighborhood’s primarily brick aesthetic. Over the project’s life, the material was changed to red brick and brick-colored cast stone and the size of the openings reduced.
The top story of the building has also been pushed back to give the building a smaller presence from the street, and to create a terrace for the penthouse.
