From the Hudson, the building is semi-prominent, with its massing negating most of the visual impact; the bulk of the structure is set back from the waterfront, and in this regard, it’s certainly scaled correctly. NIMBY opposition to the project hinged on the ‘historic’ warehouse formerly on-site, and its exterior walls were incorporated into the new iteration of 150 Charles, though one would have no idea this was the case.
Viewed from adjacent streets, 150 Charles is barely noticeable, and fits into its surroundings perfectly. The building is a natural evolution for the West Village, which is now dominated by super-luxury construction, and its brick facade will contrast nicely with the Richard Meier-designed towers to the north.
Completion is slated for 2015, and Streeteasy has additional information on pricing; active sales listings average nearly $4,000 per square foot, and a penthouse has already sold for $34 million.
