Former Jay Z, Damon Dash Tribeca artist haven eyes expansion

The owner of a tiny building in Tribeca’s historic district is reportedly seeking to top it with four more floors, according to an alteration application filed with the city.

The two-story commercial structure at 172 Duane Street, within the bounds of the Tribeca West Historic District, was formerly an art space managed by Roc-A-Fella Records producer and Jay Z associate Damon Dash, the New York Observer reported.

Dash has since moved on from the space, described by neighbors to the Observer as a “disco party scene.” The current owner of the  7,830-square-foot building, identified only as an LLC, filed with the Department of Buildings for a four-story addition, with Christian Zambrano of Sibertekture Architects as the designer, according to the Observer.

Landmarks originally opposed the plan, as did the local community board, but later approved a modified version. [NYO]Angela Hunt
