Save Gansevoort has filed a lawsuit against the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) to overturn their decision allowing a massive, out-of–character development in the Gansevoort Market Historic District.

Last June, LPC ruled that Aurora Capital could replace a row of historic one and two-story market buildings on Gansevoort Street with two massive new structures.  This decision would allow destruction of the last remaining intact block of one- and two-story market buildings in the Historic District, and would forever change the character of Gansevoort Street.  We believe that this decision violates the law.

In February, 2017,  Save Gansevoort won an important legal victory when a judge granted us a preliminary injunction that prevents the developer from doing any work on the exteriors of 60-68 and 70-74 Gansevoort Street until the court reaches a decision on our case.

Lawsuits are expensive, and we need your financial support.  Please make the most generous donation you can today!  All donations are fully tax-deductible and are made to our fiscal sponsor, The Historic Districts Council, a 501(c)3 organization.

  1. The West Village has been designated an historic sight, yet bit by bit its character is being destroyed, starting with the Memphis – one of the early highrises which obviously was out of code – through to the monstrous glass buildings on West Street near Christopher – which have no style whatsoever… they are just ugly. Our beautiful village is disappearing.

  2. I wish there was a way to include the destruction of 100 year old garage on Jane street in the lawsuit. Personally I feel the inroads in to small side streets are more devastating than the market place in the long run… This will lead to exodus from the community.
