CurbedWire: New School Fight, Selldorf SWO'd!

New, 26 comments

CENTRAL VILLAGE?The Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation is rallying the troops against the New School's long-planned new building, which would replace the Albert List building at 65 Fifth Avenue. Of the 350-foot-tall proposal, GVSHP writes: "GVSHP has consistently raised concerns about the project with The New School, including the all-glass facade, and the extreme massiveness of the proposed building, which would dwarf most buildings around it. The New School has responded to concerns expressed by GVSHP and others about their initial plan to have different colored lights projecting from the building by removing that element from the plan. However, the all-glass facade remains, and the estimated size of the new building has not only not shrunk, it has actually grown." There's a public meeting next Thursday at 6pm in the New School's Tishman Auditorium to discuss the project. [CurbedWire Inbox]

WEST CHELSEA?Trouble afoot at architect Annabelle Selldorf's 200 Eleventh Avenue! A complaint registered by the DOB yesterday dramatically states: "CALLER STATES THAT CONSTRUCTION MATERIAL FALLING FROM BUILDING.THERE IS A PICKET LINE IN ACTION AND ONE OF THE PICKETERS WAS HIT BY THE DEBRIS." Now, a Stop Work Order exists on the property for work "contrary/beyond approved plans/permits." People, how many times must we tell you: the en-suite car elevator is supposed to be there!
