CurbedWire: Whitney Feels the MePa Love, Carroll Gardens Feels More Narrow

New, 1 comment

MePa?The warm and fuzzy lovefest surrounding Renzo Piano's Whitney downtown expansion continues with a unanimous vote for the plan from Community Board 2. Per an email: "The Whitney Museum's downtown expansion plans took another step forward last night with a unanimous vote in favor from Community Board 2. The new building, deigned by architect Renzo Piano, will be built at the base of the High Line, on Gansevoort and Washington Streets." [CurbedWire Inbox]

CARROLL GARDENS?It's not a lovefest by a longshot, but the steady march to make an important zoning change that would make it harder to put big additions on buildings and limit the size of new ones continues. (The change would redefine very narrow streets as actually being narrow rather than wide because of big gardens out front.) The "narrow streets" text amendment has passed the local Community Board and just got a thumbs up from the Borough President. Next stop is the City Planning Commission and, then, the City Council.
