On-site renderings are up for The Naftali Group’s new project at 261 West 25th Street, where demolition of the existing structures is now complete; excavation for the residential building is now beginning, and Goldstein, Hill & West is the architect of record.
Permits reveal the development’s scope, which will measure 128,259 square feet. The 12-story building will be entirely residential, and given how large the 49 units will be — averaging over 2,600 square feet each — condominiums would appear likely.
Naftali’s page on the project appears slightly out of date — and also lacks any renderings — but confirms the building will likely host condos.
Appearance-wise, 261 West 25th Street will be quite attractive, with a classic brick facade cast alongside soaring casement windows. The structure appears to take inspiration from classic Gotham architecture, and will greatly improve the surrounding block, enhancing the street-wall. The site spans to 267 West 25th Street, and despite a relatively large scope, the small number of units will guarantee a ’boutique luxury’ product.
On-site signage indicates completion of 261 West 25th Street is expected in November of 2015.
