Work Progresses on Mega Mansion at 145 Perry Street in the West Village

Proposal for 145 Perry Street, a.k.a. 703-711 Washington Street. The apartment building is to the left and the mega-mansion is to the right. Designed by Leroy Street Studio

Construction has topped out at 145 Perry Street, a four-story, 30,000-square-foot mega mansion in the West Village. Alternately addressed as 703-711 Washington Street, the project is designed by Leroy Street Studio with Robert Silman Associates Structural Engineers and includes an abutting six-story, five-unit apartment building to the north along Greenwich Street.

YIMBY first reported on the project in early February 2017. After securing approvals from the Landmarks Preservation Commission, the development required the demolition of a two-story parking garage.

Recent photos show the steel-framed structure, which sits at the corner of Perry Street and Greenwich Street, topped out and mostly covered behind a dense network of black netting and scaffolding. The southwestern corner that faces the intersection is the most visible and partially reveals the interior work happening right now. There are large amounts of cinder blocks forming the inner walls, while a number of reinforced concrete beams form part of the corner of the edifice. A thin layer of blue waterproofing membrane can be spotted on the southern elevation around the window openings.

The sidewalk scaffolding and large trees directly in front of the property obscure the majority of the activity on site, and it seems like the final curtain wall has not begun installation yet. The exterior is going to be composed of handmade Petersen brick, decorative terra cotta, bronze windows, and planters. The main rendering additionally appears to show a decorative porous brick screen above the granite base that breaks away from the solid running bond surface seen with the rest of the outside.

The interiors will be finished with bronze trim, plaster walls and millwork, and feature a grand staircase, a gallery, a home theater, and landscaping by Edmund Hollander of Hollander Design Landscape Architects. See our last article for more renderings and architectural plans.

145 Perry street is anticipated for completion in 2022.

  1. An urban mega mansion? Very interesting.

    • My Prep-school, Birch Wathen was in a beautiful, “urban mega-mansion” at 9 East 71st street during the 1960’s..later on, the school moved and some guy named Epstein took it over as his private home.

  2. Eat the rich.

    You can’t get rich if you don’t take it from someone else.

  4. I thought McMansions were passé…
