Historic West Village properties on the market for $35M, but value may depend on Landmarks Commission

At 85-89 Jane Street in the West Village, Danta Raso and Ricard de La Rosa’s two historic buildings, which for decades housed their Pro Piano shop, are on the market for $35 million. Pro Piano, which carved out a niche selling Steinway pianos to concert pianists, moved out of the spot after the Related Group offered the owners an undisclosed sum in order to use the space as a showroom for Superior Ink, the riverfront condominium at West Street and West 12th Street. While the properties’ price may ultimately hinge on whether the Landmarks Preservation Commission allows the combined 12,200-square-foot space to be razed and rebuilt as something larger, hedge fund manager Noam Gottesman paid $34 million for a property belonging to fashion and commercial photographer Albert Watson across the street. He had the property demolished with the Commission’s approval and is now building a three-story home in its place. [NYT]
