SUPER CITY MEAT, Meatpacking

Except for a few wholesalers on Little West 12th between West and Washington Streets, the Meatpacking District, now the home of fashion retail and super-expensive apartment houses, has pretty much expunged all traces of its old meat wholesalers and slaughterhouses. Except…

… for this remaining sign at 426 West 13th, which may or may not remain in place during the demolition and resurrection of adjacent 837 Washington Street, which, when built on the shell of the old meat market that used to stand there, will be a glimmering residential tower, featuring a Gehry-ish twisted facade. Per curbed, the building will have one- to four-bedroom units, and pricing falls somewhere in the range of less than $1 million to more than $2 million. As a nod to the meatpackers, the old tin awnings and  defunct meat racks will continue to be displayed above the sidewalk.

  2. You need a correction here, Kevin. The Curbed article’s reference to “…one- to four-bedroom units, and pricing falls somewhere in the range of less than $1 million…” was for 241 Fifth Avenue. This building will be “…office and retail”.
