Hewitt Memorial Building viewed from 3rd Avenue and 7th Street
Cooper Union plans to demolish this structure and replace it with a 9-story structure equal in height to a 16-story residential building. The added bulk will form a massive barrier blocking the light to the St. George stained glass windows and obstructing the view of the Church's dome from 3rd Avenue. Contemporary laws governing new construction demand loading bays and garbage dumping areas, which Cooper Union says will be on the 6th Street side of the new building - a view that will be faced by the new Ukrainian Museum.
