The city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission has okayed plans convert a women’s shelter into a luxury retail store.

In July 2015, Aby Rosen’s RFR Holding bought the four-story building at 350 Lafayette Street in Noho for $26 million.

Rosen plans to transform the shelter into 13,052 square feet of commercial space for a single retail tenant, DNAinfo reported. Rosen has tapped Annabelle Selldorf to upgrade the building.

The $3 million upgrade, referred to as 11 Bond, will extend a rooftop addition across the entire façade and enlarge windows.

The shelter is operated by the Center of Urban Community Services. The organization has run the facility, which it calls “the first ever dedicated to helping homeless NYC women suffering from mental illness to obtain permanent housing,” since 1988.

The historic building dates back to 1913 and is within the NoHo Historic District. [DNAinfo]Christopher Cameron
