    Default 501 Canal Street/231 Hudson Street

    Two new hotels by Gene Kaufman:
    More info here: http://ny.curbed.com/archives/2012/0...new_hotels.php

    This zoning diagram shows the layout. 501 Canal St is the building on the left (at NE corner of Canal St and Renwick St). 231 Hudson St is on the right. There will be some open space between them. According to Curbed, it's a Sam Chang-Gene Kaufman collaboration.

    There's much worse going up around town.

    The ZD1 Zoning Diagram for these two sites (6/12/2013) shows an interconnected block facing both Renwick & Hudson, rising 82' 9-1/2" with a set back and rising to a maximum building height of 120' with an interior courtyard. Materials for the facade will be the test. Will GKA rise to its usual standards? The required 8 street trees out front will hopefully grown very very tall.

    Interesting that they're using steel here.

    Remember, that area used to be a swamp -

    I love this area, but would like to see a lot more greenery (like around Madison Sq). If it creates more traffic around the Holland Tunnel, so be it. Maybe it will encourage people to take the PATH.

    This corner lot at NW Canal + Hudson has now been cleared and looks ready for development:

    That whole block is being redeveloped what with the 261 Hudson St project starting soon. If that red building doesn't look out of place yet, it will soon.
