The Gansevoort Market area, or Meatpacking District, is an architecturally rich, mixed-use, mercantile district consisting of industrial, commercial and residential buildings historically linked to the city’s working waterfront. In 2000, GVSHP founded its “Save Gansevoort Market” project, a coalition of residents, preservationists, merchants, community leaders and elected officials fighting to preserve the integrity of the historic meat packing district and secure landmark status for the area.

In 2001, GVSHP formally submitted a proposal for designation of a Gansevoort Market historic district to the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission. In 2002, GVSHP successfully secured a determination of eligibility for the Gansevoort Market district for listing on the State and National Register of Historic Places, and secured a place for Gansevoort Market on the New York State Preservation League’s annual “Seven to Save” list, naming it one of New York State’s seven most important, endangered historic sites.

In 2003 New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission and the City Council voted to approve the proposed Gansevoort Market historic district. The designation was the first expansion of historic district protections in Greenwich Village since 1969.
