Landmark West! Opposes Massive Gansevoort Development

header_2The leading West-Side preservation organization, Landmark West!, has just announced its opposition to the massive Gansevoort development project:

A new proposal by BKSK Architects would seek to alter an entire row of the districts edge- one full block and either alter, or completely eradicate the century-old structures to replace them with 122 feet of vertical development.  There are of course, times when alterations to landmarks are appropriate but assembling a full block within a known historic district should not be carte blanche to start from scratch.
