Chelsea Market is a superb example of successful adaptive re-use of a historic complex. GVSHP successfully nominated the complex to the State and National Registers of Historic Places in 2007, and had proposed the complex for inclusion in the NYC Gansevoort Market Historic District, but without explanation the City declined to include the complex in the district designated in 2003.

We believe that a proposed rezoning and resultant large-scale additions to the complex should not be approved by the City. The additions would mar the historic integrity of the complex and loom over the adjacent High Line. They would also be highly visible over the adjacent low-rise Gansevoort Market Historic District. And the very large complex, which already generates a significant amount of traffic in the neighborhood, is already built as large as the zoning allows; the new owner/developer is seeking a 50% increase in the zoning to add several hundred thousand square feet of hotel and office space to the complex, which we believe is unnecessary and unjustified.
