Proposed Rezoning Aims to Shrink Far West Village

New, 35 comments

Though we've heard whispers that the wavy Morris Adjmi-designed boutique hotel at 145 Perry Street (right) is another victim of the ailing economy, preservationists are determined not to let a similar proposal spring to life in the Far West Village. The Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation is rallying support to rezone a sliver of the neighborhood, which is a protected historic district but?per current zoning?can be targeted for as-of-right commercial development like the Perry Street hotel, which was approved by the Landmarks Preservation Commission following a reduction in height. According to an e-mail update from the GVSHP, City Planning has agreed to review the rezoning request, and Community Board 2 will consider a resolution in support of the changes at its next Zoning Committee meeting on April 16th. Though the area in question, the C6-1 district, is a skinny little piece of the West Village, there are several "soft sites" that could see similar development, according to the GVSHP. They've mapped them out for maximum neighbor-scaring effect.
