In October of 2015, YIMBY brought you renderings of the 10-story, 21-unit residential building under development at 325 West Broadway, in SoHo. Now, new photos from our friend Tectonic show that construction on the property is done. Dubbed XOCO 325, the 55,962-square-foot structure’s condominium units range from 1,055-square-foot one-bedrooms to 2,658-square-foot four-bedrooms. Amenities include a 24-hour concierge, a fitness center, private residential storage, bicycle storage, and a rooftop terrace. DDG is both the developer and design architect, although Thomas O’Hara’s HTO Architect is the architect of record. Occupancy has already begun. The property is located within the SoHo-Cast Iron Historic District.

HTO-Architect is designing the project, which will include 1,116 residential units and 39,765 square feet of retail space. Completion is expected in the winter of 2017.

A combination of landmarking and unusual manufacturing zoning have frozen Soho in the early 20th century, but every once in a while, a developer scoops up a non-contextual and underutilized property hidden among the cast iron 19th century facades. One of those builders, KUB Capital, has filed plans to erect an eight-story, six-unit building at 146 Wooster Street, between West Houston and Prince Street.
