16 Court Street – Borough Hall Skyscraper Historic District
CERTIFICATE OF APPROPRIATENESS, Docket #1924141
This project fits in well urbanistically, and we appreciate the efforts made to respect the streetscape. We believe the project could be even better with some small changes to the design. Particularly, the expanse of glass in the planned connector is harsh in the context of Greenwich Village and not in the same language as the rest of the building. We also believe it would be improved by adding more visual interest to the monolithic grey masonry wall in front of the gymnasium, possibly by using molded, rather than extruded, brick.
