Work on 192 Seventh Avenue South in the West Village is making steady progress. Underneath the black construction netting and scaffolding, the mixed-use building has already topped-out and the exterior brick and glass curtain wall can be seen from across the street. The building is being designed by SRA Architecture + Engineering and replaces an old one-story commercial structure. It is being developed by The Jackson Group and will contain four full-floor residences.
A recent photo shows the state of the site and how close the curtain wall is to unveiling. Plans were approved back in 2014 by the LPC. From the main rendering, the eastern elevation facing Seventh Avenue South consists of large floor-to-ceiling glass windows that wrap around the northern corner. This fenestration runs from the ground level to the fourth floor of the five-story building. A landscaped outdoor terrace will sit on the fifth floor. Part of the structure rises to the fifth level along the southern edge of the property.
Meanwhile, the northern elevation on West 11th Street is more visually coherent to the traditional brick exteriors that make up the West Village’s stereotypical charm and beauty. Several running bond patterns will divide the facade to create a diverse mix of craftsmanship between the grid of recessed windows. A sloped skylight will be located on the top for one of the apartment units on the fourth floor.
Vin Sur Vingt, a French wine bar, plans to relocate and occupy 1,810 square feet of commercial space under a 10-year lease.
192 Seventh Avenue South is expected to be finished before the end of the year.
