“We went from the highest infection rate in the nation to one of the lowest, and that's a testament to the hard work of New Yorkers, who came together and flattened the curve.” So said Governor Cuomo as he announced that New York State’s coronavirus infection rate remains below 1 percent. As summer gives way to fall (and flu season), he called upon New Yorkers to keep up the good work by keeping their masks on and practicing social distancing and good hygiene.

Keeping up the good work was the rationale given for pushing back the opening of city schools for in-person classes again. Pre-K and special needs students started school on Monday, September 21; elementary school students will start on Tuesday, September 29; and middle and high schools starting on Thursday, October 1.

Locals lobby to save Upper Manhattan townhouse linked to John Audubon

857-Riverside-Drive-01 Petition image via Change.org
Shortly after permits were filed for a new 13-story building on the site of 875 Riverside Drive, a three-story wooden house dating back to the beginning of the 20th century, local activists and preservationists sprang into action. A petition from the Upper Riverside Residents Alliance describes the new building as "oversized, overpriced and unwanted in our diverse, affordable and livable neighborhood," and calls on Mayor de Blasio and local officials to put a stop to the project. Moreover, given the existing townhouse's history as part of John James Audubon's estate and connections to the Underground Railroad, they urge their officials to consider its status as a New York City Landmark. A diagram included with the petition shows the proposed new building looming over its nearest neighbors, and plans show that there will be no more than four units per floor.

New office building proposed for 72 Grand Street in the heart of Soho

72-Grand-Street-01 72 Grand Street via 72 Grand Partners
Pro-development groups such as Open New York are continuing their push for a rezoning of Soho to allow for more affordable housing units to built. Considering much of the neighborhood is under the jurisdiction of the Landmarks Preservation Commission, the odds that century-old cast-iron building and tenement buildings will be allowed to come down for new towers appear slim to none. Instead, current property owners and developers work within the framework of Landmarks and strict zoning rules to trickle in a small supply of high-end commercial and residential buildings.

The latest example is a ground-up office building planned for a vacant lot at 72 Grand Street at the corner of Wooster Street. The developer is listed as Uri Omari's 72 Grand Partners and the designer at hand are Katz Architecture. The plan involves constructing a new five-story building that will complement the proportions and look of nearby structures. The building will be finished in a grid of grey metal with neat spans of glazing in between. The project's 25-foot-wide floors will bring just 12,500 square feet of space to the market. Next door at 74 Grand Street, a 19th-century cast-iron facade was dismantled and is now being applied to a new condominium project.

Developer removes ornamentation from Bryant Park building

54-West-40th-Street-02 54 West 40th Street before (l) and after (r)
Allied Partners has been mulling redeveloping the former Daytop Village facility at 54 West 40th Street with a new tower for some time now. The site, stretching 130 feet alongside Bryant Park has long been rumored to rear a 300,000-square-foot mixed-use tower designed by Sir Norman Foster. The project would rise behind an annex to the wonderful American Radiator Building--whose Art Deco design by Raymond Hood is conceived to look like a burning furnace. Sadly, Allied recently removed all of the building's Neoclassical ornamentation likely to stave off any attempts at landmarking the 1902 building. All of the building's details including it iron Juliette balconies, corniceline, lintels, and rustication on the lower floors were removed or plastered over. In 2012, WeWork signed a 15-year lease for the entire building so the building may remain in its naked state for several more years. A new tower would also interfere with iconic views of the Empire State Building from the park.

Updated 9/23/2020: This application was approved with modifications.

600 Broadway was constructed in 1884 as a commercial building, but it’s doubtful that architect Samuel A. Warner could have imagined what the area would become: More than 100 years later, it would serve as the “Gateway to Soho” shopping with its large painted signage, most recently linked to Hollister. The signage has since been obstructed by new office buildings, and Hollister closed its flagship in 2019, but the store still serves as a “Welcome to Soho” sign by virtue of its address on the southeast corner of Houston Street.

It is also in the Soho Cast-Iron Historic District, which necessitates a virtual Landmarks Preservation Commission hearing on Tuesday, September 22. Target has submitted a presentation for the site detailing new signage, new service doors, new door frames and handrails, and modifications to an existing window. The proposal cites local examples like Crate and Barrel, Michael Kors, G-Star RAW, and T.J. Maxx (which Landmarks approved).

A Soho store is not listed on Target’s website or list of upcoming stores, but the retailer has been opening new locations throughout New York. The small-format Target in The Park Loggia is expected to open this fall, and the outpost in Bloom on Forty Fifth is expected to open later this year. New locations are also planned for Harlem, Union Square, Washington Heights, and the Upper East Side.
