Excavation Imminent at 144 Barrow Street in Manhattan’s West Village

Excavation appears to be imminent at 144 Barrow Street in Manhattan‘s West Village, the site of a seven-story residential building. Designed by BKSK Architects and developed by 144 Barrow Street LLC, the 24,800-square-foot structure will yield 16 units and 1,800 square feet of ground-floor commercial space. Titanium Construction Services Inc. is the general contractor for the project, which is located on a relatively narrow 5,000-square-foot site bound by Christopher Street to the north and Barrow Street to the south.

Recent photos from Christopher Street reveal construction machinery awaiting the start of excavation. The parcel was once home to a one-story warehouse building.

The main rendering depicts the southern elevation and shows a light-colored façade with an irregular window grid. Some of the windows are surrounded by bronze-colored fixtures with vertical grooves, while the top floors are enclosed in a contrasting dark envelope. The outdoor terrace on the roof is lined with a dark ornamental railing.

Zoning diagrams show the following gross square footage per level: 6,221 square feet in the cellar, 6,394 square feet on the first floor, 3,698 square feet from the second through fifth floors, 3,686 square feet on the sixth floor, 2,845 square feet on the seventh floor, and 713 square feet on the rooftop level. The residential living space is to measure 22,988 square feet. Also present in the diagrams are second- and seventh-floor terraces with some building setbacks around the top of the edifice. The nearest subways are the 1 and 2 trains at the Christopher Street station on Seventh Avenue. The Christopher Street PATH station is also nearby.

Completion of 144 Barrow Street is set for spring 2023, as noted on the construction board.

  1. Just a typical modern low-rise midblock residential building. 🙂

  2. I should know better than to ask, but how did this pass the Landmarks Preservation Commission (it’s in the G.V. Historic District)?

  3. I believe the district only goes as far west as Greenwich st. This is further west.
