Excavation work for the new condo building at 160 Leroy Street (a.k.a. 156 Leroy Street), in the West Village, began at least a month ago. But on Thursday, at a little after noon, a groundbreaking ceremony was held.

The event featured the ceremonial shovels, four types of sandwiches and wraps (turkey, steak, falafel, and caprese), and even little models of the building. It was announced that the building is already about 60 percent sold and the penthouses will be released in about a month. Douglas Elliman is the marketing agent.

The building, developed by Ian Schrager, will have 57 units across 12 stories. They will range from 1,000 square feet all the way up to a whopping 12,000 square feet for one of those yet-to-be-released penthouses.

Amenities in the Herzog & de Meuron and S9-designed structure will include a private courtyard and garden, 24-hour doorman and porter service, a 70-foot pool, a fitness center, a yoga and Pilates studio, a steam room, a private massage room, a recreation lounge area complete with a kitchen suitable for private events, a kids clubhouse, refrigerated storage for deliveries, bike storage, parking (for purchase), and laundry.

The units will have smart technology with mobile access, plus there will be Wi-fi and cellular repeaters. Some will even have two kitchens.

The location is between Washington Street and the West Side Highway. The closest subway station is Houston Street on the 1 train. It’s also not too far to the A, B, C, E, F, and M trains at West 4th Street.
