Landmarks Preservation Commission to Consider former Devoe Paint Factory

The former Devoe Paint Factory at 110-112 Horatio Street in the Far West Village

This morning the LPC also unanimously voted to calendar (i.e. begin formal consideration of) the proposed landmark designation of 110-112 Horatio Street, the former Devoe Paint Factory in the Far West Village. The building is one of eight individual landmarks the LPC promised to designate in the Far West Village in 2005 in response to the push for extension of landmark and zoning protections in the area led by GVSHP. The Keller Hotel, 159 Charles Street, and 354 West 11th Street were designated in March of last year, while Westbeth, Charles Lane, and 370 and 372 West 11th Street are the four remaining promised individual landmark designations which the LPC has not yet acted upon. In 2005 the City Planning Commission passed an extensive downzoning of much, but not all, of the area, and in 2006 the LPC extended the Greenwich Village Historic District and designated the Weehawken Street Historic District, also in response to the push to preserve the Far West Village.
