From The Real Deal:
A group of preservationists plans to submit a request to the Landmarks Preservation Commission to designate the Hudson River Powerhouse as a landmark. The 105-year-old building on West 59th Street, between 11th and 12th avenues, provided power for the city's first subway and still provides steam to customers of Con Edison, which owns the property. The building has been considered for landmark status twice before, in 1979 and 1991, and Con Ed opposed landmark designation on both occasions because it would delay obtaining permits if the company wanted to make modifications to the building.
Don't let this happen to your powerhouse, Manhattan!
