Construction is finally making headway at 15 Renwick Street in SoHo/Hudson Square, which had been stalled for several years. Previous plans for the site fell through, and Izaki Group Investments ultimately acquired the lot. ODA Architecture is designing, and a series of new renderings are also online, giving a better look at the project.
The first new building filings date to 2006, but the latest permits indicate that 15 Renwick Street will span 70,520 square feet, which will be split between 30 condominiums, translating into an average unit size of over 2,000 square feet. Prices will undoubtedly be expensive, and ODA’s design will certainly be unique.
Renwick Street had been relatively abandoned until recently, but new developments are now rising on both sides, with a Kaufman-designed hotel nearing completion at 2 Renwick. 15 Renwick is just climbing above street level, but it will soon stand eleven stories tall, adding to the narrow side street’s relative sense of intimacy.
Rooftop gardens will apparently be present, and the execution of that concept seems quite similar to 290 West Street, which is also rising nearby. TURF Landscape + Urban Design has images of their work on the project, which will make full use of 15 Renwick’s intricate setbacks.
Per on-site signage — which also includes a faint massing diagram as the ‘rendering’ — completion of 15 Renwick Street is slated for the spring of 2015.
