Hudson Companies Public Place Proposal Rendered
This is the rendering of the Hudson Companies proposal for Public Place between Smith Street and the Gowanus Canal. The team led by Hudson is proposing 774 units of housing, 38,800 square feet of retail, 26,400 square feet of community space and 98,300 square feet of public open space. The development would include 365 underground parking spaces as well as on-street parking. Of the housing, 380 units would be rental, 394 would be condos and 120 would be for seniors. The design was originally reported to come from Dattner Architects, but yesterday someone noted on Curbed, where we posted a photo gallery of the renderings and the Public Place site that the design team actually included Rogers Marvel Architects, Starr Whitehouse Landscape Architects and West 8 Landscape Architects. Partners in the Hudson venture include the Fifth Avenue Committee, Jonathan Rose Companies, The Bluestone Organization and the Gowanus Canal Community Development Corporation. The group has also included space for a significant number of local retailers and businesses as part of its pitch.
