Excavation is getting underway at 134 Jane Street, the site of an 11-story residential building in Manhattan’s West Village. Designed by BKSK Architects and developed by Aurora Capital Associates, the 120-foot-tall structure will span 105,804 square feet and yield 15 condominium units, as well as 200 square feet of ground-floor commercial space, a cellar level, a 30-foot-long rear yard, and 20 enclosed parking spaces. 134 Jane Street LLC is the owner and Titanium Construction Services Inc. is the general contractor for the property, which is located at the corner of Jane and West Streets along the Hudson River waterfront.
Crews are in the process of preparing the site with piling machines, concrete pumping machines, and excavators. YIMBY expects excavation to progress below street level over the next several months followed by the emergence of the new superstructure next year.
The below Google Street View image shows the parking lot that formerly occupied the property.
No finalized renderings have been revealed for 134 Jane Street apart from the preliminary diagram below. The massing is shown comprised of two stacked rectangular volumes with a 10- to 15-foot-wide L-shaped setback around the midpoint of the structure. The façade features pleated windows on the Jane Street elevation, and wide arched windows span the ground floor. A mechanical bulkhead with two wooden water towers caps the structure. The rear yard will be situated on the southeastern corner.
The nearest subways from the property are the A, C, E, and L trains at the 14th Street station along Eighth Avenue.
134 Jane Street’s anticipated completion date is slated for the winter of 2026, as noted on site.
