Construction has topped out at West 14th Street, aka 531 Sixth Avenue, a 13-story mixed-use residential building designed by ODA Architecture. Gemini Rosemont is developing the 145-foot-tall project, which is located at the corner of Sixth Avenue and West 14th Street at the northern end of Greenwich Village. Whitehall Interiors is incharge of interior design.
Photos show the reinforced concrete superstructure shrouded in orange construction netting, awaiting the installation of the floor-to-ceiling windows. The building feature’s ODA’s signature design language, incorporating an irregular massing of recessed and cantilevering cubic forms topped with private terraces.
The site was once home to an abandoned one-story structure that made headlines in the spring of 2018 after the renowned street artist Banksy secretly painted a rat on the bottom half of its clock face. Workers dismantled the old clock before the building was demolished.
The development will span 80,140 square feet, with 54,520 square feet dedicated to residential use, and 5,830 square feet for two ground-floor commercial-retail tenants. A total of 45 condominiums will sit atop, including 21 duplex units. The average residence is 1,211 square feet. Amenities include a rooftop terrace, a tenant lounge and fitness center on the second story, and storage for 23 bicycles, a laundry room, and a second fitness room in the cellar. The site is located right above the 14th Street subway station, serviced by the 1, 2, 3, F, M, L, and PATH trains.
YIMBY last reported that 101 West 14th Street is expected to be finished in the summer of 2020, though sometime by the end of the year seems more likely.
