Foundation work is underway at 14 Fifth Avenue, the site of a 19-story residential building in Greenwich Village. Designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects and Hill West Architects and developed by Madison Realty Capital, which purchased the 5,255-square-foot plot for $27.5 million in 2015, the 241-foot-tall structure will yield 20 condominium units. CM & Associates is the general contractor for the property, which is located between East 8th and East 9th Streets, just north of Washington Square Park.
Recent photos show a concrete truck, piling machine, and an excavator working on the cramped site. Based on the pace of progress, foundation work could conclude by late winter, followed by the rise of the reinforced concrete superstructure.
The main rendering shows a typical RAMSA Pre War-inspired façade. The first three levels are enclosed in large stone blocks, followed by a gray brick façade with white stone trim surrounding an orderly grid of windows with black mullions. A series of stepped setbacks on the upper levels make way for private terraces that will provide residents with views of Washington Square Park and the Lower Manhattan skyline.
Below is a timeline of the design changes to 14 Fifth Avenue. The final result is more integrated with the surrounding neighborhood context.
14 Fifth Avenue’s completion date is set for winter 2024.
