SOHO — The city's Landmarks Preservation Commission will hold a hearing Tuesday on giving historic protections to a section of SoHo that they're calling the Sullivan-Thompson Historic District.

The area in question spans some 157 buildings, including properties recently purchased by President-Elect Donald Trump's developer son-in-law, Jared Kushner.

The Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation has been pushing for years for the area to be landmarked, and redoubled their efforts when the city became involved in a deal that would result in a massive development at the St. John's Terminal across from Pier 40.

GVSHP is crediting City Councilman Corey Johnson with getting the city to move forward on the designation.

The St. John's project requires City Council approval, and Johnson has been forceful about wanting the area in SoHo landmarked.

The LPC hearing begins at 10 a.m. and will take place in the Municipal Building at One Centre St. on the 9th floor.

Information on the hearing is available on the LPC's website.
