The Real Deal New York

Silver Towers and Picasso sculpture landmarked

November 18, 2008 04:10PM

The city Landmarks Preservation Commission voted to landmark the I.M. Pei-designed Silver Towers and its central Pablo Picasso sculpture, “Portrait of Sylvette,” in Greenwich Village at 100 and 110 Bleecker Street and 505 LaGuardia Place. The Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation first proposed landmarking the Greenwich Village modernist buildings in 2003. New York University owns the buildings, and is planning on building a 40-story building within the complex, which the buildings’ new landmark status will make more difficult. TRD
