The Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation reveals a rendering for a possible new building coming to 372 Lafayette Street, at the corner of Lafayette and Great Jones Street in NoHo. The relatively handsome building is designed by Morris Adjmi and (if it survives) should be a rental. That is, it'll be a rental if it can make it through the LPC, which is having a vote on whether or not to approve the design later today. The sharp NoHo expert will recall that this is indeed the lot where David Wallance wanted to build his, er, creative six-story building made of shipping containers. Indeed, that proposal was approved but never built. In any case, the latest rendering seems much more contextual and easier to swallow. We wait with bated breath on the vote.
