The Landmarks Preservation Commission is now reviewing proposals to renovate a five-story townhouse at 22 East 10th Street in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village Historic District. The scope of work includes removal of the party wall separating 22 and 24 East 10th Street, which will allow the owner to nearly double the home’s residential space.
Construction is nearing completion on NYU‘s campus expansion at 181 Mercer Street in Greenwich Village. Designed by Davis Brody Bond and KieranTimberlake, the 735,000-square-foot complex consists of three towers rising from a full-block podium between Houston, Mercer, and Bleecker Streets and I.M. Pei’s University Village complex. The project is the culmination of over a decade of proposals, planning, and building that dates back to the mid 2000s. Turner Construction Company is the general contractor for the development, which is aiming for LEED gold certification.
Construction is getting closer to completion on 101 West 14th Street, a 13-story residential building in Chelsea, Manhattan. Alternately addressed as 531 Sixth Avenue, the reinforced concrete structure is designed by ODA Architecture and developed by Gemini Rosemont and will yield 44 condominium units as well as 5,830 square feet of ground-floor retail space for two tenants. Residential sales launched last year and are being led by Ryan Serhant of Nestseekers International’s Serhant Team, with prices starting at $1.35 million for one-bedroom units. Whitehall Interiors is in charge in interior designs and New Line Structures is the general contractor for the property, which is located at the northwest corner of West 14th Street and Sixth Avenue, just above the border with Greenwich Village.
Exterior work is nearing completion on 76 Eighth Avenue, a ten-story commercial structure in Greenwich Village. Designed by Gene Kaufman Architect and developed by Sang Lee, Noviprop, and Plus Development, the 120-foot-tall structure will yield 30,000 square feet of office space and ground-floor retail. RAAD Studios designed the lobby space and Plus Design Studios designed the office interiors for the property, which is located at the corner of Eighth Avenue and West 14th Street, on the border of the Meatpacking District, Chelsea, and West Village neighborhoods.
Construction on 540 Hudson Street is progressing as the seven-story, 63-foot-tall reinforced concrete superstructure begins to climb above the sidewalk scaffolding. William Gottlieb Real Estate is the developer and Titanium Construction Services is the general contractor of the Greenwich Village property, which is located at the corner of Hudson and Charles Streets. The residential and retail building is rising on what was once a vacant lot and before that a gas station and garage. The Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) approved the updated plans last December and BKSK Architects is adopting the original design that was first envisioned by Morris Adjmi Architects. The final result will be a 48,535-square-foot building with 6,000 square feet of retail space on the ground floor and cellar, and a total of 26 apartments.
