Positioned in SoHo’s Cast Iron Historic District, 99 Wooster St. hosts a previous firehouse built in the early 1850s. It was designated as a landmark internet site in 2019 by the Landmarks Preservation Fee.

The general public critique course of action on a system to rezone SoHo and NoHo is a go.

The Metropolis Planning Fee (CPC) on Monday accredited the de Blasio administration’s application to upzone a 56-block swath of the Lower Manhattan neighborhoods, exactly where elite boutiques and wealthy arrivistes have changed the manufacturing web pages and artists that characterised the spot a half-century back. 

Mayor Bill de Blasio has sought to modify the zoning guidelines in the project area to incorporate up to 3,200 new models, such as  up to 900 residences priced below industry level, develop concrete principles to protect against massive box suppliers from relocating in and lift barriers to companies, arts and cultural organizations.
