Peter Brant's East 6th Street Outreach Tour 2015 continues
[EVG file photo]
Reps for Peter M. Brant and his architect are meeting tomorrow night at Village View to discuss the art collector's plans for 421 E. Sixth St., the building he purchased last year for $27 million...
Well, the posted flyers note that the owner will answer questions. (What are the chances that Peter Brant will be at this meeting?)
In any event, among other modifications/additions, Brant's reps are calling for a rooftop terrace and a garden to the west of the building here between Avenue A and First Avenue. (Read more about the plans here.)
During a CB3 Landmarks Committee meeting last month, residents learned that the building is intended to be a gallery space to display Brant's personal art collection. The intention is to have approximately two shows per year, with the first show scheduled for Fall 2016. (Hopefully Vito Schnabel's people won't be doing the planning.)
The meeting is at the Village View Community Room at 6:30 p.m., 175 E. Fourth St.
