Construction has topped out on 144 Barrow Street, a seven-story residential building in Manhattan‘s West Village. Designed by BKSK Architects and developed by 144 Barrow Street LLC, the 24,800-square-foot structure will yield 16 residential units and 1,800 square feet of ground-floor commercial space. Titanium Construction Services is the general contractor for the property, 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.
Façade work is starting to take shape behind an assembly of metal scaffolding and black netting. The grid of windows has been framed out with cinderblocks and is awaiting the installation of the glass and final cladding.
Renderings depict a long canopy stretching over the first level, bronze-colored materials framing some of the windows, and the top floors enclosed in a much darker envelope with black railings along the setback for a rooftop terrace.
The opposite northern side along Christopher Street is pushed back from the sidewalk and has a smaller number of windows. This makes room for ground-floor frontage up against the sidewalk for the retail component, which will be topped with a second-story terrace.
YIMBY last reported that zoning diagrams indicate the following breakdown of each level’s square footage: 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. Residential living space will measure 22,988 square feet. 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.
