The Standard Beer Garden seems to do well. How about another restaurant under the High Line? The Villager attended this week's Design Commission meeting and learns that there's one in store for the newly approved $14.6 million maintenance-and-operations building at Gansevoort and Washington. The new building, which will allow trash, equipment, and maintenance to be taken off the High Line, will include an information booth, restrooms, an elevator, public meeting rooms, and a restaurant "that will reflect the structure of the railroad viaduct overhead."
But the Hansons and Meyers of the city don't need to put the bids in just yet (though maybe it's time to start brainstorming). The building won't be complete until 2013, and construction doesn't begin until next summer. It will be built by the same firm working on the downtown Whitney right next door.
