Great Jones Street in the East Village is set to get a few more residential units. The Landmarks Preservation Commission yesterday gave the green light to a renovation plan for 45 Great Jones Street,Located Between Lafayette Street and Bowery. The structure will be enlarged and partially converted into residential space, and its façade is set to get a facelift, Curbed reported.

This is not the first time the conversion plan has gone before Landmarks, but the initial plan got voted down. This time, architect Richard Metsky, who is handling the project, presented changes to the plan, including a recessed and smaller penthouse. The height adjustment will make the building blend in better with its surroundings, Landmarks said.

According to PropertyShark, the building measures 7,551 square feet and has a market value of nearly $1.2 million. Curbed wrote that the building used to house a lumber business. [Curbed] — Zachary Kussin
