Construction is progressing on The Keller, a residential project at 150 Barrow Street in Manhattan‘s West Village. Designed by BKSK Architects and developed by Aurora Capital, the project involves the construction of a new seven-story structure at 144 Barrow Street and the renovation of the former Keller Hotel, and will yield 24 condominium units in one- to four-bedroom layouts. Titanium Construction Services is the general contractor and Compass Development Marketing Group is handling sales and marketing for the property, which is located at the corner of Barrow and West Streets, directly across from Hudson River Park.
Exterior work has progressed on both buildings since our last update in July 2022, when the new seven-story structure had recently topped out and was awaiting the installation of its white brick façade. This final envelope now encloses most of the southern elevation along Barrow Street, and almost all of the tall windows are in place. Meanwhile, the earth-toned brick façade of the former Keller Hotel has been largely restored. The old neon signage still hangs from the southwestern corner and the ground floor is obscured behind sidewalk scaffolding, but both should be removed soon as work finishes up.
The roof parapet will be topped with a landscaped terrace with panoramic views of the Hudson River and the Lower Manhattan skyline.
The northern elevation of the new structure features the same white brick fenestration as the main face. A low-rise podium extends from this side to Christopher Street and will be topped with an outdoor terrace.
Residential amenities at The Keller will include a resident’s lounge, a landscaped courtyard terrace with a barbecue and a kitchen area, a fitness center, children’s playroom, laundry room, bicycle storage, a package room with cold storage, and private storage units available for purchase.
The Keller is anticipated to finish construction within the second half of 2023. Sales are expected to launch later this spring.
