The White Truffles

The Landmarks Preservation Commission rejected the application for the above design at 456 Greenwich. Curbed has a full rundown of the meeting, and evidently the chair said she’d be fine with tearing the building down and replacing it with something taller. Highlights of the proposal materials are below—but at the bottom is the big new reveal…. The design for the 11-story hotel, which is affiliated with the restaurant, behind it at 443-445 Washington (also designed by Gene Kaufman Architects). All of this is a Ponte Equities project, by the way.

All of the images in this post get substantially bigger if you click on them.

PowerPoint PresentationPowerPoint PresentationThis is the back (i.e., as seen from Greenwich) of the hotel at 443-445 Washington, which does not need LPC approval because it falls outside of the Tribeca North Historic District. Suddenly the whiteness of the restaurant makes more sense…. I hereby christen it the White Truffles!
