Hudson Square Property Owner Plans Dominick Street Park, 30-Story Building




February 17, 2012

A real estate company looking to build a 30-story housing tower on Spring Street says it will tear up a parking lot and create paradise if the city makes zoning changes that would allow the construction of a building and park.

Dominick Street Park and a 320-foot-tall building would take the place of the parking lot Edison Properties owns between Dominick and Spring streets and Varick and Hudson streets, just north of the Holland Tunnel, company vice president Anthony Borelli said in an interview. "One of the primary goals of our plan is to encourage the creation of a vibrant, mixed-use neighborhood," he said.

Edison's plans are dependent on city approval of a zoning request by Trinity Real Estate that would allow residential development in Hudson Square — the 18-block area roughly bounded by West Houston Street, Sixth Avenue, Canal Street and Greenwich Street. Designs for the 13,700-square-foot, mid-block park envisioned by Starr Whitehouse Landscape Architects and Planners show new trees and plantings, moveable cafe tables and chairs, and a fire department-themed children's play area with water features, in a nod to the park's neighbor the New York City Fire Museum.

Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation president Andrew Berman said Hudson Square will need more parks as it gains residents, but he questioned the wisdom of allowing tall buildings to be built in exchange for them. Community Board 2 chair Brad Hoylman said he thought it was "positive" that a player in the Hudson Square rezoning was considering opportunities for new parks. "CB2 feels strongly that rezoning Hudson Square to include residential use creates a need for new open space," he said, adding that the board does not have an official position yet on Edison's proposal.

Hudson Sq. heights too high, residents say on zoning

March 29, 2012
BY ALBERT AMATEAU

Quote:
Residents of Hudson Square’s low-rise blocks voiced their concerns on Tuesday on a proposed 20-block district that would encourage a mixed commercial/residential district active 24 hours, seven days a week.

...Height limits for new development would be 320 feet on the wide streets of Varick and Hudson Sts. and Sixth Ave.; 125 feet on Broome and Watts Sts.; and 185 feet on Dominick, Spring, Vandam, Charlton and King Sts. The proposed height limits are intended to achieve the goal of transforming the district, currently dominated by warehouses and commercial lofts, to 25 percent residential. But Sylvia Beam of the Vandam St. Block Association and Dick Blodgett of the Charlton St. Block Association, said the proposed 320-foot and 185-foot limits were not low enough to ensure the quality of life in the low-rise blocks.

Ugh. NIMBYs. Hopefully they don't have their way... this particular nabe could use an influx of new residents.

It's inevitable. With the city's population growing, there must be more housing in underutilized spaces. Of course, the most underutilized space of all is up, but some of these neighborhoods of Manhattan at least, that aren't historic could use some upzoning.

Besides Trinity's stake in the neighborhood, another tower has been proposed at Spring and Dominick Streets. Yet again, NIMBYism has reared its ugly head, even though the developers have already planned major concessions to the public's benefit--besides the new tower, which will rise a mere 320 feet, Edison Properties proposes a new 13,700 square foot park adjacent to Dominick Street. Despite these major improvements, many NIMBYs are still outraged, arguing that the height of new buildings is somehow linked to quality of life issues--in the meantime, residents are flocking to the Financial District, where the vast majority of buildings are skyscrapers.

Needs to be built. 320' is nothing, although I do think 500'+ would be unreasonable for this neighborhood.
