Gansevoort Row, Awards for Excellence in Retail Development Finalist
Design Team Leadership, BKSK Architects
A mentor provided a refrain with which we often remind ourselves: “Stick around the people with the questions, not the people with the answers.”
When some of Gansevoort Row’s storefronts were used as an experimental stage for a production of ‘7 Deadly Sins’ with seating in the street alongside packed new restaurants and shops which have opened, it was clear the project had become a backdrop to public space, abuzz with activity enjoyed equally by lifelong New Yorkers, new transplants, and visiting tourists.
Simply walking New York City is inspiring; its neighborhoods constantly evolve but maintain the legible history of hundreds of years of life and commerce.
