Madison Capital’s Soho triangle project gets Landmarks nod

Madison Capital’s plans for a six-story office and retail building at 19 East Houston Street, in Soho, received the approval of the Landmarks Preservation Commission, after the developers submitted a new plan with a less glassy façade and reduced retail signage.

Locals had said the initial design by Perkins Eastman, which had called for a primarily glass façade, was out of character with the neighborhood and better suited to a Midtown office tower, as The Real Deal reported, and landmarks commissioners said the design suggested a thin, flimsy building and requested revised plans.

The new design calls for a brick façade at Crosby Street and a separate façade of glass and metal panels facing East Houston Street, Curbed reported. The developers also reduced the amount of retail signage at the building, the blog said.

Madison Capital, which purchased the 6,190-square-foot lot from the Metropolitan Transportation Authority in July for $25.82 million, is to take possession of the space in August of next year. [Curbed]Hiten Samtani
