The Landmarks Preservation Commission gave BKSK Architects’ third-round rendering of a West Village mixed-use building the thumbs up Wednesday.

The design was the third version of plans for 130 Seventh Avenue presented to the Landmarks Preservation Commission by developers Erez Itzhaki of the Keystone Group and Continental Ventures. The retail-and-residential building is shorter than in previous versions and will feature less glass and more brick in a nod to planners concerns with earlier plans, according to the article.

“I cannot imagine a better building for this site,” Michael Devonshire, an LPC commissioner, told the developers. “As a New Yorker, I thank you for this building.” Another commissioner, Fred Bland, went so far as to call the new design “thrilling.” Keystone paid $6.3 million, or $1,983 per square foot, for the 3,500-square-foot property between West Tenth Street and Charles Street in February 2013. [Curbed]Angela Hunt

    Terrible developer, bad bad bad reputation.

  • VillageKId

    More intrusion on this long-landmarked area. The arrogance of wealth, power and city developers. But there’s no stopping them with commercial spaces such as these. The should create another park–but that would be considered “crazy”.
