Gene Kaufman Architect, P.C. (GKA) has received approval from the Landmarks Preservation Commission on the design for a new mixed-use development at 11 Greene Street in SoHo.
“SoHo is the quintessential landmark district because it is defined by architecture. A bygone era has been miraculously preserved in the neighborhood’s structures,” said Kaufman, founder of GKA. “To have the opportunity to design a building in this community is an architect’s dream come true.”
The long-vacant site at the corner of Greene and Canal Streets is set to become a six-story building featuring ground-floor retail space with residences above.
The design utilizes distinct but complimentary materials on the two masonry façades which are punctuated by large windows and joined together at the building’s corner.
