West Village Must Decide Whether to Undulate

The Sculpture for Living is a glorious sight to behold, of course, but it's just so damn ... east. What are our Greenwich Village bretheren supposed to do when they want to feast their eyes upon waves of glass? Well, they just might be in luck. Here's an excerpt from a memo sent by the board to residents of 2 Horatio Street (right), talking about what developers want to do with a nearby parking lot:

The building proposal is for a 7-story section along Greenwhich Avenue and an 11-story tower on the 8th Avenue side adjacent to the deli on 14th Street. The developer stated the building is in conformance with local zoning relative to the square footage, however the developer is seeking permission to increase the height along Greenwhich Ave by 7 or 8 feet. The design calls for a modern all glass undulating facade. Everyone can formulate his or her own opinion of the design however it is important to note we are in the West Village Historic District. In order for this project to be built the Landmarks Preservation Commission must give it their approval.Ka-pow! The memo then lists two public meetings where the building would be discussed, including a Community Board 2 get-together on February 24. Anybody hit that up?
