Over a year and a half after a Morris Adjmi Architects-designed project in the Flatiron District received approval from the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC), the development is in its final stages before construction begins, YIMBY reports.
The project is now before the City Planning Commission, which needs to approve special permits that will allow for the construction of this development that is located in the Ladies Mile Historic District.
Plans call for the construction of two connected towers at 38-42 West 18th Street and 41-43 West 17th Street. If City Planning gives its nod, the project will rise 17 stories on West 18th Street and 16 stories on West 17th Street.
In total, the Acuity Capital Partners-developed buildings will feature 66 apartments. The project also calls for the creation of commercial space on the first three floors, a 17-car garage, and parking spots for 39 bikes.
The property is currently a parking lot and sits between two loft buildings. The LPC had rejected an earlier version of this project for being out of character with the other buildings in the neighborhood.
