Historic Soho Building in Landmark District to Go Residential

New, 1 comment

A new residential development in Soho is seeking to restore the neighborhood's past. The city's Landmarks Preservation Commission approved the conversion of a century-old commercial building at 10 Greene Street into a structure with four residential units and retail space on the ground floor, NY YIMBY reports.

The building was designed and built in 1869 by architect John Butler Snook, most famously known as the designer of the Grand Central Depot, the structure that preceded the current Grand Central Terminal in Midtown. The renovation and restoration work is being undertaken by the developer Javeri Capital and architecture firm, RSVP Architecture Studio.

Restoration work will include repairs to existing granite sidewalk, the installation of glass bulbs and iron handrails, and replacing the existing entrances with wood and glass doors, reminiscent of original structure from the 1800s. Once the restoration work is complete, the second and third floors of the existing five-story building will feature one apartment each measuring 2,082 square feet. The fourth and fifth floor will be transformed into a duplex apartment with 2,630 square feet of space. The fifth floor will also be the lowest level of a 2,901-square-foot triplex, which will see an increase in the height of the building.

The building sits across from the stalled Gene Kaufman-designed residential project, 341 Canal Street.
