Construction Update: 2 Renwick and 261 Hudson Street

While development is booming across Lower Manhattan, the block of SoHo that contains 2 Renwick and 261 Hudson Street has seen particularly significant changes in recent months. Work is now wrapping up at 2 Renwick, which will likely come out more attractive than depicted in renderings, while excavation is finally underway at 261 Hudson, where earth is moving quickly.

YIMBY last posted about the 10-story and 325-room 2 Renwick in early June, and the development has made significant headway since then; the brick facade appears to have been nearly fully installed, and a peek under the scaffolding reveals an attractive and subdued look, though windows are still pending.

The site spans through the block, with other listed addresses of 503 Canal 231 Hudson Street; Kaufman is the architect, and the Metropolis Group is the developer.

Just a short walk up, Related’s new project at 261 Hudson Street is also moving quickly. The building — designed by Ismael Leyva, and set to rise 12 floors with 201 apartments — will fill one of the larger cavities on the block, also spanning through to Renwick Street.

2 Renwick is expected to open later this year, while 261 Hudson has a summer 2016 completion date. Together, the buildings round out the last large redevelopment opportunities on the block, which still has some smaller sites worthy of new buildings.
