Site Description[1] 
The Site is located on the New York City block bordered by Canal Street to the north, Washington Street to the east, Watts Street to the south, and West Street (the West Side Highway) to the west. The Site encompasses an approximate area of 25,800 square feet (0.592 acres). Lot 1 (the western parcel) is occupied by an approximate 13,320 square-foot (0.305 acres) asphalt-paved parking lot. Lot 22 (eastern parcel) is occupied by interconnected one- and high two-story buildings and occupies an area of 12,480 square feet (0.287 acres). The buildings are currently vacant. In October 2010, the City Council adopted the North Tribeca Rezoning, which is intended to continue the neighborhodds's transformation from industrial uses to "family-friendly" residential uses. Currently, adjacent properties consist of residential to the north and south, mixed commercial and residential to the east; Landmarks include the Hudson River and West Side Highway to the west and Holland tunnel to the northwest. Lots 1 and 22 were developed with two to five-story buildings in 1894 with unclear use. In 1905, a warehouse was built on the northern two-thirds of lot 22 and used to store steel through 1925. In 1922 lot 1 was developed into a building with use labeled as Tower Stores Inc. Lot 1 was then used as a gasoline filling station from 1950 through 1968. Subsequently, it has been used as a parking lot. From 1928 to 2005, lot 22 was used as a railroad freight station/freight warehouse. Currently, the buildings located at lot 22 are vacant. Subsurface strata consists of fill extending to depths ranging from 23 to 25 feet below ground surface (bgs), underlain by clay atop silty sand and bedrock. Depth to groundwater ranges from 5.90 to 13.72 ft-bgs. The groundwater elevation is highest in the northwest and slopes toward the southeast.
