Construction is now complete on 11-19 Jane Street, a six-story residential building in Manhattan’s West Village. Designed by London-based firm Chipperfield Architects and developed by Edward Minskoff of Minskoff Equities, the 31,000-square-foot project yields seven residential units, averaging 2,382 square feet each, and ground-floor retail space. The property is located on a wide plot between Greenwich Street and Eighth Avenue.
The earth-toned brick masonry facade and grid of large square and narrow windows that make up the main southern elevation of 11-19 Jane Street is now complete, while work on the interiors should likely be wrapping up. Located in the Manhattan neighborhood of the West Village, the topped-out mixed-use residential and commercial project will soon debut as a 31,000-square-foot structure designed by London-based design firm David Chipperfield Architects, and developed by Edward Minskoff of Minskoff Equities. There will be a total of seven residential units inside, averaging 2,382 square feet each. The site is located between Greenwich Avenue and Eighth Avenue and is one street below Jackson Square Park.
YIMBY checked in on 665 Fifth Avenue, the site of a forthcoming David Chipperfield Architects-designed headquarters for Rolex. The Midtown lot sits at the intersection of Fifth Avenue and East 53rd Street and is currently occupied by a 12-story structure that was built in the 1970s. This International Style building will be torn down to make way for the new 25-story edifice, which will feature a contemporary design of irregularly stacked boxes clad in glass.
