ODA’s Mixed-Use Residential Project Tops Out at 101 West 14th Street in Greenwich Village

Construction has topped out at West 14th Street, aka 531 Sixth Avenue, a 13-story mixed-use residential building designed by ODA Architecture. Gemini Rosemont is developing the 145-foot-tall project, which is located at the corner of Sixth Avenue and West 14th Street at the northern end of Greenwich Village. Whitehall Interiors is incharge of interior design.

Photos show the reinforced concrete superstructure shrouded in orange construction netting, awaiting the installation of the floor-to-ceiling windows. The building feature’s ODA’s signature design language, incorporating an irregular massing of recessed and cantilevering cubic forms topped with private terraces.

The site was once home to an abandoned one-story structure that made headlines in the spring of 2018 after the renowned street artist Banksy secretly painted a rat on the bottom half of its clock face. Workers dismantled the old clock before the building was demolished.

The development will span 80,140 square feet, with 54,520 square feet dedicated to residential use, and 5,830 square feet for two ground-floor commercial-retail tenants. A total of 45 condominiums will sit atop, including 21 duplex units. The average residence is 1,211 square feet. Amenities include a rooftop terrace, a tenant lounge and fitness center on the second story, and storage for 23 bicycles, a laundry room, and a second fitness room in the cellar. The site is located right above the 14th Street subway station, serviced by the 1, 2, 3, F, M, L, and PATH trains.

YIMBY last reported that 101 West 14th Street is expected to be finished in the summer of 2020, though sometime by the end of the year seems more likely.

  1. This building is in Chelsea, not Greenwich Village!

  2. Does anyone think the scale and proportions of this structure fit the setting? Why are we allowing these monstrosities to take over our city??

  3. More “Topping Outs” than foundations being started..at least for a while.

  4. This is going to be a very good looking building but I was disappointed the MTA did not require station upgrades including a new entrance in the buildings base as part of the development.

  5. ODA makes more or less deconstructivist style in architecture. And this neomodern building is general example of ODA architecture. Emerging first in Fourth Avenue in Brooklyn, in East River riverside, in DoBro, in DUMBO, LIC, and now come in lower rised portions in Manhattan island. ODA typical architecture looks like made from modules, light, and changed our City architecture for something unique (only in NY), well at least mostly for NY, since ODA’s designed buildings are building now, in Raleigh, Charlotte, DC, Chicago, even in Toronto!!!

    • Oh lucky us! We get to have buildings that seem designed by pre-schoolers playing with blocks. No sublimity, no grace, no human feel. Just a pile of boxes, forever looking unfinished.

      • The blocks lend a more human scale than a lot of new NYC buildings have. And the blocky forms aren’t without precedent — to some degree they echo cliff dwellings and hillside villages.

  6. That the former beautiful and historic Greenwich Savings Bank and other banks that were housed within as of late, were ripped down to erect this monstrosity is proof that our current group of architects are architecturally blind!

  7. Why two gyms? It’s 40 feet from the best Y in town.

  8. ODA no longer lists this property on their site. Was it taken over by someone else? I can’t seem to find anymore updated info on the project and construction is still going.

  9. This building is so unbelievsbly ugly. I can not believe people like this garbage style of architecture. I’m not necessarily against new construction, but this eco-jenga crap has got to go.
