Say Bye-Bye to MePa Warehouse, Hello to High Line Hardship

New, 7 comments

The last we heard about the Romanoff family plan for the Meatpacking District warehouse on West 13th and Washington was a teeny tiny tower trim setting the proposed glass-walled office building at 175 feet in height. We've heard nary a peep in the two years since, though the developers have just filed a demolition permit with the DOB. Preservationists and Amanda "A-Bomb" Burden succeeded in diminishing the proposed height of 250 feet (a full 66% larger than the area's zoning permits, justified by the developers because of its "hardship" location next to the High Line), but the Art Deco warehouse is about to go the way of MePa's aromatic older cousins: to the slaughterhouse.
