‘Women’s Building’ announced as winning proposal for the redevelopment of Bayview Correctional

By October 26, 2015ARExA News

Governor Cuomo announced today that “Women’s Building” proposal was selected for the renovation of Manhattans’s Bayview Correction Facility. The winning proposal was designed by ARExA for Novo Foundation and G Group.

From Novo Foundation’s Press Release…
Empire State Development today awarded NoVo Foundation, in collaboration with Goren Group, rights to restore and redevelop the former Bayview Correctional Facility, located at 550 West 20th Street, New York, into The Women’s Building. The medium-security women’s prison will be reclaimed by girls’ and women’s rights groups working to create a world free from violence, poverty, and injustice. The Women’s Building will serve as a hub for the women’s movement, service providers, and the community.

Gloria Steinem, author and feminist activist, is one of the project’s many supporters. “I’ve known personally since the mid-1970s – and I heard even earlier – about the need and hope for a women’s building in New York City,” said Steinem. “Now, there is even more need because of high rent and operating costs here, and more hope because we’ve seen how much such buildings benefit other cities. New York has the greatest need because it receives so many women leaders from other states, other countries, other continents, yet they have no central place to visit – this building will unite them.”
